The IFLA Health and Biosciences Libraries Section is hosting a seminar, Exploring How Open Science and Open Access Influence the Spread of Health Misinformation and Disinformation and How Librarians Can Help.

The event takes place on 29th July 2022 at Dr. Steeven’s Hospital, Dublin, Ireland from 09:30 – 12:00.

This half-day seminar will explore the strengths of the Open Movement– e.g. potential to widely share health data and information; and its vulnerabilities– e.g. proneness to misinformation, fraud, and politicization.

The seminar will also highlight how librarians and information professionals have overcome issues with open access in low-resourced areas, such as the issue of preprint quality, energy/Internet insecurity, and/or publishing in open access journals.
