Evaluating Information: Home


Searching for information on the internet may seem an easy task because we now have access to millions of sources. However; the quality of your assignments will be directly related to the quality of the information you use.

Use CRAAP or TOPMAC-RU (for History) to evaluate the sources you find before you take notes.
