Lessons about Information Literacy

Information is Power – Even When it’s Wrong, Amy Fry, ACRLog (Sep 11)

Amy Fry, a San Diego-based librarian, gives us all a lesson in examining what we read on the web much more carefully – and certainly do so before using it. This tells a story where the mistake or misinformation should have been caught at several stages, and especially at the beginning when a close look at the date would have revealed that the story was not current. But it also shows us that the web is still the wild west of unvetted, uncontrolled information.
