ASI Webinar: Sources: Evaluating for Reliability
with Kelly Delevan, MSIS
With the rise of misinformation and disinformation on the open web, it is becoming increasingly difficult to determine the credibility of information sources.
Yet, as an indexer, it's important to know that sources you use for your work are reliable.
Kelly Delevan, Information Literacy Librarian at Syracuse University Libraries, will guide participants through a series of tools and techniques that can be used to evaluate the reliability of sources that can be found on the web.
- Learn about the rise of misinformation, disinformation, and malinformation on the web
- Distinguish identifying characteristics of each type of information
- Learn techniques, like the SIFT method, that have been developed to help users quickly assess the credibility of information sources online
