How do I navigate the COVID-19 evidences?

Gerstein Librarians has developed an open access E-module on Navigating the COVID-19 Evidence Landscape under CC4.0 licensing. The module is available to all students, faculty, and staff at the University of Toronto and the general public. 
Text: 'Navigating the COVID-19 evidence landscape' on the starting page of e-module.


By the end of this module, you should be able to:

1. Describe different types of information sources and the evidence processing involved in creating them
2. Understand the unique special considerations to be aware of when searching for and using evidence for Covid-19

Acknowledgement of Traditional Land

The sacred land on which the Council of Ontario Universities (COU) operates has been a site of human activity for 15,000 years. This land is the territory of the Huron-Wendat and Petun First Nations, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. The territory is the subject of the Dish-with-One-Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy and the Ojibwe-Chippewa and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. Today, the meeting place of Tkaronto (colloquially known as Toronto) is still the home to many Indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work in the community, on Treaty 13 territory. This statement was developed by the Elders Circle (Council of Aboriginal Initiatives).
