During her convocation speech to graduating students of the San Jose State
University School of Information, Debra Wallace said, "Given that the
Oxford Dictionaries' word of the year for 2016 was Post-Truth, the need for
easy access to relevant, authoritative, and timely information, as well as
the ability to sort through an equally growing volume of misinformation has
never been more important. An informed citizenry depends upon libraries and

Wallace heads library services at the Harvard Business School, and her
sentiment is echoed loudly by the keynote panelists who will dig into the
role of libraries and librarians in addressing fake news, propaganda, and
biased research during next week's Library 2.017 web conference
on "Digital Literacy and Fake News." The conference will be held online
from noon - 3 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time (world clock
on Thursday, June 1, 2017. *Registration is free*

   Member at the Graduate School of Library and Information Science,
   University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
   - Mnar A. Muhawesh, Editor In Chief, MintPress News

The hour-long keynote panel presentation will be followed by concurrent

the world. For example, Lecturer Laura Milita and Associate Professor
Gabriela Grosseck from the West University of Timisoara, Romania, will
address the role of educators in helping students to become media and
digital literate in order to fight against fake news and content. Paul
Loranger, an international educational consultant from Edmonton, Canada,

problem solvers in our digital age. View Accepted Proposals
