Speaking of STEM, a new blog from the Rutgers–New Brunswick Libraries, is dedicated to advancing critical thinking about STEM topics by engaging the Rutgers community in discussions on timely issues.

The blog presents issues affecting academia and the public, including anti-science rhetoric, diversity and inclusion, and open science. It will also provide resources to help students navigate their STEM education here at Rutgers.

Speaking of STEM will cover a variety of topics such as thinking critically about information (information literacy), science communication, scholarly communication and research, and data management. Examples of posts you might find are “Debunk Your Own Coronavirus Myths,” “How to Spot Climate Change Fake News,” “Finding and Evaluating Scholarly Resources,” and “Ethics in Science Communication.”
