Evaluating Sources

Evaluating Sources

For these assignments, a minimum of three outside sources is required.  Whether the information is found using the library's databases or on the free web, it is important to evaluate it for relevancy to your topic, accuracy and reliability. Use the S.I.F.T Method below, especially with content you find on the free web (aka Google).  If you found a source you are not sure about, contact Maryanne and we can review it together.

The S.I.F.T. Method is a derivative based on Professor Mike Caulfield's Introducing SIFT, a Four Moves Acronym
