NewsGuard will share how libraries across the U.S. are using its free browser extension as a media literacy resource. NewsGuard’s trained journalists review thousands of news and information websites using nine standard journalistic criteria which assess the credibility and transparency of online news sources. Its ratings and Nutrition Label reviews can be accessed from its browser extension, which, when installed, displays NewsGuard’s ratings next to links on Google, Facebook, and Twitter. The presentation will be followed by a discussion about the balance between spreading information literacy while promoting access to information.
