Evaluating Resources

Along with accessing, searching, and finding information, evaluating information is vital. This guide reviews questions to ask about the resources and sources you discover. You can use the CRAAP Test and the 5 Ws to ask questions about websites, books or articles, there are videos about Peer Review and Evaluating Credible Sources, information about Filter Bubbles and the Search Tips page suggests ways to limit your searches to reliable sources.
