TIPS FOR EVALUATING SOURCES
This site provides valuable information to consider when evaluating an internet or print source.
Wikipedia is a free online encyclopedia with tons a great information ... and some not so good. Since Wikipedia allows anyone to update the information on their pages, this site takes some work on the part of the reader to evaluate and make sure the information is from a reliable source. This is a good site to use in the beginning of an assignment for basic information and finding other ideas for deeper research. (Student recommended)
