There are several approaches to evaluating information sources. The Library has provided links to web sites which will provide you with varied tips on evaluating information found in books, journal articles, and on the web. You may view the Evaluating Resources links immediately below, or have a look at a 3.41-minute video, or a list of Quick Tips in sections further down.
One way of critically evaluating sources found on the Internet is to subject them to the PARCA Test.
Why does this resource exist?
