EVALUATING SOURCES?

What is a bibliography?

Whether you find a source in a book, newspaper, journal, website, or a video or audio clip, you should record exactly where you found it.

EVALUATE PRINT SOURCES

  • Does the author have expertise to write on this topic?
  • Is the information in this source up-to-date?
  • Is the source appropriate for your research?

You and your instructor determine if a source is appropriate for your assignment.

Determine whether the source is an opinion piece.

Bibliographies highlight the sources that influenced the author's work. Use the bibliography at the end of a source to find other related works

EVALUATE ONLINE SOURCES

  • Is it credible?
  • Is it accurate?
  • Is it timely?
  • Is it objective?
  • Does the site provide details that support the data?
  • When facts or statistics are quoted, is the source revealed in footnotes and/or a bibliography?
