Evaluating Sources: Exercise 1

Library Resources for Jill Parrott's ENG 102 class

What Standards Will You Use?

Please break up into groups of 3-5 and discuss the top three standards you use when evaluating an information source. Take about 5 minutes to do so.

 

This might be easiest when you think of evaluating a website, but in fact it applies to any information source: websites, newspapers, videos, journal articles and books.

 

Be prepared to volunteer one of the standards your group agreed on, and tell us why you think that it's important.
