Evaluating Sources

Evaluating sources is necessary in order to figure out if sources are going to help or hurt your studies! This research guide will help you examine your sources.

Welcome to the Evaluating Sources Research Guide!

Welcome to the library's research guide for evaluating sources! When evaluating sources, you investigate where the source comes from, who the authors are, when it was published, what institutions are involved, and more! Please click on the tabs to learn more.
