PLA Launches Super Searchers Information Literacy Training Program

Sep 12, 2023

The Public Library Association (PLA) has opened registration for the Super Searchers information literacy training to begin September 19. With multiple available training dates, library staff can register for a one-hour training session to gain skills and tools to help patrons critically engage with online information.

The Super Searchers training session was created in collaboration with Mike Caulfield of the University of Washington, who developed the SIFT method for fact-checking (Stop, Investigate, Find better coverage, and Trace claims). Upon completion, training participants will be able to use common frameworks to assess information quality online, be equipped to use and share major features of the Google Super Searchers suite of tools, and be able to integrate misinformation awareness into patron interactions.

Learn more about the program and additional information literacy resources here. Register to join one of the free Super Searcher trainings here.
