Featured Resource: Fakes News and Misinformation Guide
Fake News is a recent term for an old phenomenon: misinformation. Fake News has become much more prevalent due to the spread of social media and our reliance on internet sources. This guide will help users tell facts from fiction and build their skills in navigating the world of information including misinformation, disinformation, and disreputable information sources.

Fogler Library Classroom 2
November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), and Fogler Library will host three Write-Ins open to anyone participating in NaNoWriMo. Write-Ins are informal gatherings that give writers the opportunity to work alongside other NaNoWriMo participants. No RSVP is necessary, and writers can attend as many or as few sessions as they would like. Please share this with any students or colleagues who are interested in writing a novel as part of NaNoWriMo.
