I often suggest that patrons double and triple check their information from several reliable sources, particularly seeking out sources that might not agree. It is important to get all sides of a picture. I suggest that if the information is related to another country or area of the world, that they try to find a source from that part of the world, to see how the information is presented. I suggest guarding against relying on social media, blatantly partisan sources, and hearsay.

Hi Barbara:

What kind of response do you get from the students when you take that approach?
