Evaluate Information

C R A A P. Currency, Relevance, Authority, Accuracy, and Purpose. Indeed, there is a song that emphasizes this method of evaluation!

Credible Online Sources

This is just a sampling of credible information sources from the Internet. To measure the credibility of an information source ask a few questions:

  1. When was the information published or updated?
  2. Does the information relate to your research needs?
  3. Who created the content? What are their qualifications?
  4. Is it reliable, truthful and correct? Is there evidence to support it?
  5. What does this information exist? To educate others? To sell a product?
