Upcoming Events

"Lies, damned lies, and news: How do today’s students stay informed and what can librarians learn from them?"
November 8, 2018, 1:00pm CT

Reporting on Project Information Literacy’s 2018 national study of more than 5,000 students and their news engagement practices, we discuss what the findings mean for information literacy instruction. Actionable recommendations are offered for unravelling the complexities of the “post-truth problem,” specific to our time, technologies, and information habits of young news consumers.


  • Kirsten Hostetler, Research analyst and survey manager for PIL’s news study, “How Students Engage with News.”
  • Margy MacMillan, Senior researcher with Project Information Literacy (PIL) and a co-author of the news study report, “How Students Engage with News: Six Takeaways for Educators, Journalists, and Librarians.”
