Lies, Facts, and the Future of Our Democracy

This guide collects information and recources discussed in the forum presented by Romel, Courtney, and Vicky on March 3, 2021.


The COVID-19 pandemic and 2020 presidential election have highlighted the persistence of fake news, misinformation, and disinformation in our body politic with dramatic, even devastating effects.

Libraries, as information centers that collect and preserve knowledge, are instrumental in providing reliable, fact-based information. What can we as the Stevens community do to address these ongoing problems? Join librarians Courtney Walsh, Romel Espinel, and Vicky Ludas Orlofsky in a forum to discuss how these issues impact us as participants in a democratic society.
