  • Select 'Curtin University - Find It @ Curtin'
  • Save Preferences

    About websites

    Not all the of the information you find on the internet is accurate, up-to-date and reliable.

    It is important to evaluate your information before you decide to use it in your assignment.

    Ask yourself:

    - how relevant is it?

    - is it current and up-to-date?

    - is it published by a reputable author or organisation?
