In proclaiming October 2009 National Information Literacy month, President Barack Obama said:
“Though we may know how to find the information we need, we must also know how to evaluate it. Over the past decade, we have seen a crisis of authenticity emerge. We now live in a world where anyone can publish an opinion or perspective, whether true or not, and have that opinion amplified within the information marketplace. At the same time, Americans have unprecedented access to the diverse and independent sources of infor- mation, as well as institutions such as libraries and universities, that can help separate truth from fiction and signal from noise.”
The journal, Library and Archival Security, would welcome submissions on the topic of misinformation on the Internet, including the Web and Social Networks, and means of addressing it. Now entering its 23rd volume year, L&AS is a peer-reviewed publication of Routledge, a division of Taylor and Francis.
Original research, case studies, book and software reviews, and opinionated editorials on all aspects of physical and communications security, problem behavior, conservation, preservation, disaster preparedness and recovery, and related legal and social issues are welcome.
