Evaluating Information

What makes a good source? Here are a few things to consider:

  • Authority and accuracy: Who authored the information? What are their credentials?
  • Intended audience: Is the information directed to a particular group? (researchers, consumers, etc.)
  • Purpose of information: Is the information designed to educate? To market an idea or product?
  • Date created & updated: Is information up to date? Does it reflect the current trends of the discipline?
  • Contact information: Is it possible to contact the author or institution?
