Join MPL librarians for a small-group discussion of "Verified: How to Think Straight, Get Duped Less, and Make Better Decisions About What to Believe Online," by Mike Caulfield & Sam Wineburg. Learn how to identify red flags, get quick context and understand the strengths and drawbacks of information sources like Google and Wikipedia.
