You always want to find the best information when you are doing research. This requires careful evaluation of the information sources that you use whether in print or on the Web. Since anyone can publish content directly to the Web, it is particularly important to evaluate information sources found on the Web.

Reasons for Evaluation

  • To find the most relevant and appropriate information for your project.
  • To add depth, quality, and reliability to your research.
  • To find expert views, opinions and research on your topic.
  • To weed out outdated, unreliable, biased and incorrect information.
