Federation of Ontario Public Libraries

You are invited to attend our live COVID-19 Misinformation prevention webinar!

On March 20th, at Noon EDT we will be hosting a webinar to teach you How to Combat COVID-19 Related Misinformation. In this webinar, we hope to provide you with valuable resources and tactics to combat misinformation inside your library, through your reference lines, and online help chats

Sarah Brandt of NewsGuard and Christopher Harris of the Genesee Valley School System will bring you valuable tips on how to guide your patrons when they come to you with COVID-19 related questions. As more libraries close, more and more people will be left without the resources they need to straightforward and factual information. Library helplines and online reference services will be more important than ever and a clear understanding of how to spot misinformation will be more especially valuable

Share the webinar on Twitter and Facebook!

Just because our libraries are closed doesn’t mean we cannot ensure our patrons are consuming unbiased and factual information in a time when the truth can help save lives. We hope to see you on March 20th at Noon EDT!

If you cannot attend the live webinar, RSVP anyway and we will send you a recording.
