The COVID-19 pandemic has further increased our reliance on social media and the Internet for information. This development, combined with underlying political partisanship, has created a breeding ground for disinformation, conspiracy theories, and information overload. Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh has long provided resources for the best-quality information in the service of the public in Pittsburgh and beyond.

This 3-part program teaches strategies to navigate the flood of information and deception to help make better decisions with better information—about COVID-19 or any decision we face in our complicated lives.

  • August 17th: Making Good Arguments
  • August 24th: Conspiracies!
  • August 31st: Scams and Hoaxes
