Selecting and Evaluating Sources

August 2 @ 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM EDT

Trying to decide which information sources to use for an assignment can be difficult. Books, journals, websites – does it really matter which you cite from? It can, so we’ll help you recognize the differences. In this workshop, we’ll discuss:

  • commonly used information sources in academic and college research
  • types of author expertise
  • misinformation and bias
  • evaluation criteria and lateral reading to determine credibility
  • determining relevance (matching your need with a source type)
  • library, internet, and open access search tools
