Jessica Cilella writes: “Like many libraries, Albuquerque and Bernalillo County’s library system is turning to a new generation of tech tools and digital resources to teach media literacy. NewsGuard is a web browser extension designed to literally red-flag problematic articles and blog posts like the one published by American Pastors Network, a faith-based organization, on drag queen storytime performers. More than 200 libraries have installed NewsGuard on their public computers as a teaching device to promote media literacy. Richland Library in Columbia, South Carolina, was among the first, introducing the browser extension across its 14 branches.”
