ENGL 1012: Memory: How Do I Know if a Source is Credible?

Finding and Evaluating Sources for Credibility

Using the Library to look for sources is different than using Google. Librarians select materials for inclusion in the collection, so much of what you find in a Library has already been vetted as authoritative. That's why it's important to use Library search tools such as OneSearch and article databases such as JSTOR. However, this is a helpful guide for evaluating any source you find.
