Avoiding C.R.A.P. Online

Avoiding C.R.A.P. Online

Stop and evaluate before you hit share. Trustworthiness exists on a scale online. Using the memorable C.R.A.P. acronym--currency, reliability, authority, and purpose--participants will discover methods and tools to determine the trustworthiness of any resource. Learn to do your part to stop the spread of misinformation online. 

About the Speaker: Miranda Stefano is a librarian, technologist, and bibliophile. She is a graduate of the University of Maryland iSchool and RIT School of Print Media. She enjoys sharing knowledge with others and is always looking for new opportunities to do so. Her specialties are communication, sign language, technology, and information literacy.
