Upson, Matt, (author.). Luetkenhaus, Holly, 1985- (author.). Hall, C. Michael, (author.). Cannon, Kevin, (author.).


"Since its original publication in 2015, Information Now has helped college students address this fundamental issue in the form of a short, humorous graphic guide. It explains how information is organized, both on the open web and in library resources, and how to navigate those sources to find good, trustworthy answers. But the information landscape has changed dramatically in just a few years, and this revised edition explores new questions about who has access to information and about algorithmic bias in how search engines present results. The book also covers online misinformation and offers simple strategies for fact-checking websites. In addition to this expanded topical coverage, the new edition includes revised critical thinking exercises in every chapter to help students feel more engaged in improving the information landscape"-- Provided by publisher.
