Can newsrooms learn from librarians?

Louise Lief discusses journalism's alienation from the public and says librarians have a remedy: "Their job is to navigate the world of information, help scholars and students get what they need, and distinguish good information from bad. They’ve faced their own technological disruptions, and have responded by developing a set of principles to help their public assess the credibility of information and use it ethically. They call this framework 'information literacy.'"
