Techniques and Approaches:
Librarians on Information Credibility and “Fake News”

10:30-11:30Saturday, June 23 
Sheraton New Orleans, Rm Bayside C 

This session will help librarians of all types to discuss, share and receive feedback on their approaches to the key current topics of information credibility and fake news.

Topics will include classroom pedagogy, LibGuides and other web resources, and innovative techniques and approaches in all areas. This will contribute to PPIRS’s ACRL Plan for Excellence in the Student Learning focus.

We are soliciting a small group of librarians to give brief presentations at the beginning of this session as a means of stimulating discussion. If you feel you have an approach that others might find interesting, or a problem in this area you’d like to solve, contact David Schwieder, PPIRS Chair, at

More about the program:

The panelists will explore the preservation of knowledge generated through social activism, including textual and non-textual knowledge, providing examples and explaining theoretical issues related to each. A variety of perspectives will be represented on the panel, including that of a political philosopher who has written about the preservation of non-textual knowledge, a librarian who has worked on a social activism collection, and a filmmaker who has documented the social activism of LGBT communities. For more information, please refer to the following guide: This ANSS/PPIRS program is co-sponsored in-name only by the GLBT Round Table.
