Finding quality sources

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 and accurate is it?
  • Are sources cited and references provided?
  • What is the purpose of the site? To provide information, promote ideas, sell a product?
  • Is it current and up-to-date?
  • Is it published by a reputable author or organisation?

Watch our video on Evaluating Information to find out more.

Always check the URL of a website to determine what type of site the information is coming from:
