Evaluate Your Sources
Whenever you conduct research for any course the information you find should be evaluated for:
- Currency (is the information up to date?)
- Relevancy (is the information relevant to your topic/subject/assignment?)
- Authority (is the author identified and have the proper credentials to make such claims?)
- Bias (does the author/organization/publication have a stake in providing only one side of an argument?)
The information in this LibGuide has been evaluated for these criteria and are more scholarly than what you might find in a simple Google search. However, you should always evaluate the information you use in any assignment.
