In the era of “fake news, “alternative facts”  and other polarizing topics, you’ll want to make sure your facts are straight. Stop in and checkout this new display by Sophia Brewer.

We are all bombarded by information 24/7 – from tweets, Facebook, television, radio, friends and family, newspapers, books, in Blackboard – you name it!  It can be overwhelming. Oh, and the hashtags! There is a hashtag for everything and many of us get our news via hashtags. Do they really make things easier to find? How do you research a hashtag?

Librarians suggest that you read widely from a variety of sources, written from different perspectives. By doing so, you’ll surely better understand the issues that have long-term impact.

This display offers information on  some of those trending hashtags and hot topics. #knowlegeispower, #citeyoursource, #libraries
