This exploratory research seeks to understand the critical thinking mindset of thirty-five LIS students by analyzing online class discussions of two management case studies.  Three categories of mindsets were identified: Idealists, Pragmatics, and Skeptics.  Overall findings revealed that seventy-five percent of participants appeared to be strategic in their approach to resolving management problems.  This study demonstrates that cultivating a critical thinking mindset among new information professionals would be an effective way to address societal and organizational challenges of the current “alternative facts” era.
