Finding just the right sources for academic research can be like
making an expedition into the unknown -- and requires time and a
critical eye. Once you learn how to evaluate information (from both
print and electronic resources) you’ll  be able to choose the best
sources every time.

By the end of this chapter of the Research Survival Guide you will be able to:

  • Identify the best sources for your research
  • Apply criteria to make strong evaluation decisions
  • Understand the importance of evaluating sources and information
  • Distinguish between the different types of information on the Web
