Evaluating Information

Don't forget to evaluate the information that you find, especially on the Internet.

Ask yourself questions like:

  • Who wrote it?
  • Are they an expert?
  • How current is it?
  • Is it biased or neutral?
  • Is it accurate?


Use the Evaluating Resources Guide to determine if you are using an appropriate resource.

You can always ask a librarian for help!
