Teaching information evaluation is not a sometimes thing
During a long discussion about general education requirements at a college where I was an "information literacy librarian", we had to decide whether to have a single stand-alone class on information literacy or to embed the concepts throughout all general education classes and the majors. it was a helluva lot more work, but mercifully, the faculty chose the latter.
To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, we have discovered that evaluation of information is "not a sometimes thing, but an all the time thing." This is true in librarianship and society beyond academe.
One thing that I have given much thought to of late is that 10 years ago we did not fully appreciate the challenge of emotional connection to information. It may have been that it was because I was teaching these concepts in a college setting, but we did not full appreciate that if a person is connected to an idea as part of their identity or emotional make up, it is difficult to impossible to use logical argument and evidence to shake them from that idea.
My modest proposal for the moment is that we must teach and demonstrate every opportunity how to evaluate information and disinformation to create the discipline. People have to grow up with the idea that information evaluation is part of everything connected to their lives. Something has to replace the lure of conspiracy theories and its ilk. In short, it has to be as ubiquitous as grammar and mathematics in our everyday thinking. Thus, there is a role for public libraries as well as school and college/university libraries.
The term may be considered by some to be old fashioned, but "information literacy across the curriculum" is where we should start.
