Uris Library, Uris Classroom
McGraw Tower, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA

In the high-speed world of reality-optional politics, “alternative” facts, and “fake” news, how can you identify news sources that are accurate and trustworthy? There are tools and approaches to help you be a more effective evaluator of news sources and news content. Join us for an hour of working together to recognize reliable news sources and separate them from the “alternative,” fake, truthy, and promotional versions.

Please bring a laptop to the workshop. Laptops can be borrowed at the Olin Library circulation desk.
