Beginning 2:30pm, Thursday 29th April and taking place over a number of weeks until 24th June 2021, LIR, the user group within HEAnet libraries hosted a series of 1hour seminars on the growing issue of misinformation.
We invited all HEI library personnel to participate and be part of propelling the discussion of how academic librarians in Ireland can, as trained experts in the practice and teaching of evaluating information, media literacy and critical thinking skills, lead the way in disrupting misinformation in the post truth era.
LIR HEAnet User Group for Libraries provides a forum for discussion on the use of electronic resources and networks by HEI libraries and assists in development and training for their effective use.
LIR encourages communication and co-operation between member libraries in accessing electronic resources. LIR aims to help academic libraries explore and develop their digital capacity by providing seminars and workshops for members, as well as other such events which bring this community of practice together.
