Deciding what to trust online - Library

Have you ever believed something you read online that later turned out to be untrue? Should you trust Wikipedia? This session will explore these questions and give you some tools to help you evaluate the information you find online. You’ll have the opportunity to contribute your own views and experiences and ask questions of Library staff.

Nicola Beer is a learning and teaching librarian and has been working at the OU Library since 2013. She supports students directly on the Library helpdesk, answering queries over the phone, by email and webchat and also runs training sessions for students. She’s really interested in anything to do with engaging students with the Library, but especially using technology and social media. In her spare time she will try anything once, especially fitness challenges and any opportunity to learn something new.

I have worked at the OU Library for several years, as a Learning and Teaching Librarian, contributing to new modules in Social Science and Sports Studies, and supporting students. I’m interested in digital skills and seeing the Library’s exciting online resources used to the full. In my spare time I enjoy the company of friends and family, cycling, jogging and reading.
