This paper explores how the field of librarianship can help
counteract the phenomenon of Infodemics, fake news, disinformation and
misinformation. Thereby, describing the major characteristics of an
infodemic, which involves an abhorrent overflow of junks, typically from
unreliable sources and spreads with such fervency that it creates chaos.
Thereby, combining an inordinately high volume of information (leading to
problems relating to locating the information, storage capacity, ensuring
quality, visibility and validity) and rapid output (making it hard to assess its
value and lead to a waste of effort). This cumulates to the collateral growth of
misinformation, disinformation and Malinformation.
