Library and information practitioners are dedicated to providing accurate evidence. How do we then respond productively to intentionally-produced misinformation? This panel discussion will consist of practitioners representing health, public, and academic organizations. The discussion will begin by describing the dynamics of fake evidence and trace it to its sources, including hostile governments. Next, panelists will review established methods to counter suspected fake information and suggest new techniques for responding proactively to fake evidence.
Grab your lunch, and join John Lenahan (JSTOR) and Jill Morris (PALCI) for their presentation, "Transforming eBook Access & Collective Collections through Data: The New JSTOR EBA Program & PALCI's Consortial Pilot."
Description: After nearly two years of partnership and experience running a consortial Demand Driven Acquisitions program, JSTOR and the PALCI consortium gathered feedback and data leading to the development of a successful new Evidence Based Acquisitions program in the Fall of 2016. This presentation will briefly describe the new model, its benefits, as well as PALCI's consortial implementation and transition from DDA to EBA during a 9-month pilot. Presenters will provide data showcasing the model's ability to support strategic consortium and library collections goals.
