Remembering How to Evaluate Resources

Not all information is created equal.

This is especially true of information found on the open web, via Google or other search engines. While there is wonderful, high-quality information to be found, there is also utter crap. As well as everything else in-between. Whether for one of your courses or for your personal use, one of the key parts of the research process is evaluating your information, i.e., using your Crap Detector.

Based on the CRAAP test was developed by librarians at CSU Chico.
