With the rise of so-called "fake news," it is more important than ever to think critically about what we hear and read. As American astronomer Cliff Stoll said, "data is not information, information is not knowledge, knowledge is not understanding, and understanding is not wisdom." That is, just because you have some “facts” and share them doesn’t mean you’re informed or the “facts” are useful. Librarians, who have long been activists, are mobilizing like never before ensure the free flow of information, protesting the Administration’s executive orders and working within their communities helping us all to grow as we participate ethically in discovering and using information.
