Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why trust the library's news sources?

A: The news in the library has been selected and curated by information professionals and librarians who objectively study and research what makes a well-rounded news collection.

Q: Why get news from the library instead of on social media?

A: Website algorithms make their platform's news feeds choose stories for us based on factors like our past and current interests, our physical location, and our friends. Put another way, the computer shows us what it thinks we are interested in seeing based on math and data. This can result in an "echo-chamber" or bubble.

Q: Why would I choose library news over the internet?

A: There is so much information (and misinformation) on the internet that it can be hard to navigate through all the material. News in the library has already been filtered, saving you time.
