Mis & disinformation in Australian academic libraries

Mis & disinformation in Australian academic libraries

Join us for a Research Review Seminar with Dr Nicole Johnston (Edith Cowan University).

Dr Nicole Johnston was awarded an ALIA Research Grant to carry out research into the impact and management of mis and disinformation in Australian university libraries.  

In 2022, Nicole interviewed a number of university library managers who manage collections or library services and surveyed university library staff. Nicole will discuss the findings of her research, the resource toolkit she developed, and recommendations for key industry stakeholders to support Library staff teach information and media literacy skills and manage mis and disinformation in collections.  

Dr Nicole Johnston is Associate University Librarian at Edith Cowan University and was elected to the ALIA Board member in 2023.

The ALIA Research Review Seminar Series provides a platform for academic and practitioner researchers to share and discuss their work and projects with the wider library and information sector community. ALIA endeavours to support the process of research being translated into practice by bringing researchers together with professional practitioners and on-the-ground workers in an engaging, informal setting.
