Welcome! Here, we'll discuss searching for library resources using UC Library Search, the new systemwide catalog and search tool, and databases with significant content pertaining to misinformation in the media and other arenas. We'll also learn how to retrieve journal article citations from UC Library Search and databases, and check them for accuracy. We'll also do a couple of in-class exercises to help you get started on your misinformation paper. Finally, we'll look at some resources to help you cite your work, including bibliographic citation managers.
