September Topic: Misinformation & Information Behavior: Challenges for the information professions

Misinformation and disinformation are not new phenomena but are particularly concerning in the era of social media. This talk explores how mis- and dis-information spread, and how people’s information behavior both facilitates this spread, and challenges attempts to counter it.
