UC Merced Deputy Librarian on BYU Radio
BYU Radio host Matt Townsend interviewed Deputy Librarian Donald Barclay about the challenges libraries are facing in the era of fake news. He addresses questions such as: how do we choose what information to consume in a world where there is essentially limitless information?, can we avoid an ‘echo chamber’ and find objective truth when different sources offer “alternative facts?". Donald then explains how libraries are trying to help people evaluate information for themselves. Listen to the full interview here.
