Campus Theme Presentation: Don’t Believe Everything You Read with Librarian Jim Rible

Join SOU and Hannon Library librarian, Jim Rible, for the Campus Theme PresentationDon’t Believe Everything You Read: A View from 30 years at the Library Research Desk. 

Version 2

The presentation will take place on Wednesday, May 22, from 7 to 8 pm in Hannon Library, Room 117.

Rible will discuss how the sources we use for pursuing knowledge have dramatically evolved over the past 20 years. He will cover the fact that what is considered an authority has changed from something taking place among the relative few in the hallowed halls of universities, labs, and libraries amongst serious scholars to include anyone, anywhere with a mobile device and a Wi-Fi connection. Rible will offer his perspective on this shift and how it affects the way we pursue wisdom.
