Science News Literacy in the Time of COVID

Posted by Angela Brcka for University Libraries

Confused about COVID information? You're not alone! COVID-19 has highlighted a new "infodemic" as we are bombarded with facts, fiction, and rumors when trying to make sense of scientific information. Join us as we explore the many ways that scientific information is shared through traditional media and online. We will explore the impact that misinformation, spin, and bias have on our understanding of science, and learn strategies for making sense of it all.

Presented by librarians Carrie Leatherman and Dianna Sachs.
