The Auburn Public Library has partnered with students in a class from the Digital and Computational Studies Department at Bates College for a Zoom event, set for 11 a.m. to noon Tuesday, Dec. 12.

In this class, “Calling Bull: Data Literacy and Information Science,” students look at misinformation, and dive deeply into the “who, what, where, when, why, and how” of the propaganda. The course culminates into a capstone project wherein students put together a portfolio of three pieces of misinformation and work to correct or debunk the information, according to a news release from Donna Wallace with the library.

During this community session with the class, Calling Bull students will share a piece of their portfolio in which they present a rebuttal in an effort to set the record straight.

Registration is required by visiting or calling the Reference Desk at 207-333-6640, ext. 4.

Participants will receive an email with the Zoom link the day before the program.
