Facts Matter


A joint campaign led by the CILIP Information Literacy Group (ILG) with support from CILIP and other CILIP Special Interest Groups.

The aim of the campaign is to help the public, businesses and Government improve their resilience to fake news and misinformation by developing critical skills and information literacy.

We believe that fake news and misinformation and their impact on our democracy constitute a public health crisis, and that countering them effectively depends on a large-scale intervention to improve the ways in which people engage with and share information online.

Over the next 3-5 years, we will develop programmes focused on:

  • Public awareness of information literacy as an essential skillset for a connected society;
  • Supporting school librarians to help teachers and learners improve their digital and information skills;
  • Equipping information professionals and librarians with the skills and resources to improve their users’ information and digital literacy.

More on Information Literacy

CILIP defines Information Literacy as “the ability to think critically and make balanced judgements about any information we find and use. It empowers us as citizens to reach and express informed views and to engage fully with society.”
