Librarians, many specializing in information media, contend that librarians have both the opportunity and the responsibility to teach their communities how to determine whether the information they encounter online is accurate, reliable, and worthy of being shared. Among their topics are from yellow journalism to tabloids to clickbait: the origins of fake news in the US, fighting fake news: the limits of critical thinking and free speech, school librarians: partners in the fight against fake news, cultivating students as educated citizens: the role of academic libraries, and fake news and academic librarians: a hook for introducing undergraduate students to information literacy.
