Standing Up for Truth: The Role of Libraries in the Mis/Disinformation Age. A WikiWisdom Report. Merriam-Webster defines misinformation as “incorrect or misleading information.” “Disinformation is more sinister. It is defined as “false information deliberately and often covertly spread (as by the planting of rumors) in order to influence public opinion or obscure the truth.” One can turn into the other when an unsuspecting person, believing it to be true, unwittingly passes along the more sinister disinformation, turning it into misinformation. Both create problems for “sense-making,” or developing a plausible understanding of a shifting world. For that reason, this report uses the combined term, mis/ disinformation, throughout. … Recognizing the crisis of a lack of shared understanding of evidence-based facts, librarians are refining their role as Information Literacy experts. Increasingly, it falls to librarians to teach library users to examine their beliefs in order to make thoughtful, informed decisions.”
