Abstract: Since 2016 the Seminar on Information and Society at the Library and Information Research Institute (IIBI) at the National Autonomous University of Mexico has addressed Fake News and Disinformation as part of its projects. The Seminar comprises a group of Latin American library scholars who have worked to shape a research agenda to find solutions to the Fake News and disinformation phenomena from a library perspective. This contribution will show concrete examples of projects from this Seminar, such as the Ethical Use of Information Week: Post-truth and Fake News in 2017, which was a series of webinars, workshops, and round tables along with library associations, public and academic libraries, and library schools from Mexico, aimed to build a national conversation about Fake News and disinformation.
