@ALAlibrary @OIF Issues Resolution on Access to Accurate Information

In a press release sent out yesterday the Office for Intellectual Freedom (OIF) announced a resolution adopted on January 24th by the American Library Association (ALA) Council. The resolution prepared by the ALA Intellectual Freedom Committee (IFC) – Resolution on Access to Accurate Information – addresses the “problems of fake news, personalized news-feeds, web search algorithms and the delay of Freedom of Information Act requests.” 
The Resolution outlines the role of librarians and library workers in helping to raise awareness of these issues and “supports the critical role of librarians and library works in all types of libraries in teaching information literacy skills that enable users to locate information and evaluate its accuracy.”
