Evaluating Sources

After completing your research, select which items to use in your paper. Evaluate the information based on its usefulness. Bear in mind that not all information is accurate, credible or timely.

Information found in your library and in library databases has been selected by library staff and other academic professionals, and usually comes from reliable sources. Still, it should be evaluated carefully. World Wide Web information varies from useful to simply wrong.

Evaluate this information using criteria like the CRAAP Test.
