This guide was developed in concert with Fighting Fake News: Tips for Aspiring Truth Detectives, a presentation on fake news delivered by Sociology Professor Erin Steuter and Librarian Jeff Lilburn on 3 February 2017. The presentation covered current examples of fake news, why fake news is on the rise, and how it has political consequences. It also provided an overview of tools individuals can use to identify and debunk fake news. This guide includes many of the resources discussed in the presentation.
