7 thoughts on “Information Literacy vs. the Demagogue

  1. A very exciting and enlightening article to information literacy librarians.I work in a public and more so in a community based library and I know the effects of disinformation to the community by the demagogue. The librarians should become ruthless information activists in order to inoculate the communities against manipulative information of any nature.
    I am encouraged by your article. Thank you.

    1. Thanks for your kind words, Joseph. I think we’ll have to be careful in our approach (political issues can be very sensitive for a lot of people), but I would very much like to see libraries providing resources and programming to help users develop their sophistication as consumers of political information.
