Information and Society: Moving Beyond Basic Information Literacy to Responsible Digital Citizenship
At a time when the spread of misinformation, “fake news”, propaganda, and misleading sensationalism is prevalent and more powerfully disseminated than ever, it is important that students are able to properly navigate and analyze information and its sources. Together we developed an upper-division information literacy course on information analysis and evaluation. In this session we share the course proposal process, course design, and tips on how to work collaboratively for curricular change.

Are you inadvertently creating access barriers that prevent your patrons from using the library? Do your policies and procedures create barriers for your community? This program will help you recognize institutional barriers and how they disenfranchise the populations that need library services the most.
