This Site is Fake Dot Com: A novel resource for teaching information literacy and a community model to support it.

The overall need is to provide library staff with resources and a replicable model to support teaching information literacy. The intended impact is to co-design a sustainable resource that provides an authentic environment for information literacy instruction, while addressing instructional pitfalls of using “live” examples on social media. To do this, we will develop a website, associated professional development, and a model using youth engagement to provide a sustainable means for keeping the site updated with new material of relevance to our partners. The partner organizations for this project are six public libraries from different parts of the country that will work with us on this effort.
