Academic Law Libraries’ New Frontier–The Post Truth Cognitive Bias Challenge and Calls for Behavioral and Structural Reforms

From the abstract for Kwanghyuk David Yoo, Academic Law Libraries’ New Frontier–The Post Truth Cognitive Bias Challenge and Calls for Behavioral and Structural Reforms (2019):

This article recognizes the escalated concerns of the post-truth phenomenon over its robust play-out as an emerging impetus and catalyst for another level of cognitive bias distorting information behavior, and the reasoning process, of the general public. The article highlights the functional vulnerability of academic law libraries to the post-truth challenge and explores their new frontier in the data-driven era. The article suggests that academic law libraries endeavor to revamp themselves in behavioral and structural contexts. Thus, it maintains that the role of academic law libraries should be reoriented and reshaped as information activists and they should consider technological renovation, inter alia blockchain application, for enhanced Integrated Library System design.
