The Librarian War Against QAnon
by Barbara Fister

"Why isn't this something students learn in school?"

In this timely article from The Atlantic, Librarian and Professor, Barbara Fister argues that traditional information literacy (find and evaluate) is not enough to prepare students in today's information quagmire. Students must learn about the information landscape. 

"It’s time for a thorough revamping of the purpose of inviting students to engage in inquiry as a civic practice. Educators, including librarians who teach, will need to confront and clarify their own beliefs and assumptions about how they know what is real and what isn’t. It will take work. But there are some promising places to start."
