Welcome to the Evaluating Sources LibGuide.
Locating information, whether in print or electronic format, is only the first step in the research process. The next step is to evaluate the quality and the usefulness of what you find. Using appropriate sources will help you achieve better results.
Click on the tabs above for strategies to help you evaluate the sources of information that you find.
It is easy to find information on the Internet but the majority of wepages won't be suitable to be cited in your university assignment, therefore you must critically evaluate the information before you consider using it for an assignment.
Try the Internet Detective tutorial if you need some practise with evaluating websites.
