About this event

Shining a light in the Post Truth Era

Beginning Thursday 29th April @ 14:30 and taking place over a number of weeks until 24th June 2021, LIR, the user group within HEAnet libraries will host a series of 1hour seminars on the growing issue of misinformation.

We are inviting all HEI library personnel to participate and be part of propelling the discussion of how academic librarians in Ireland can, as trained experts in the practice and teaching of evaluating information, media literacy and critical thinking skills, lead the way in disrupting misinformation in the post truth era.
