MS - Is This A Good Source?: Home

The Questions

Use these questions to help you to determine if a source is a good resource for your assignment.  

Be prepared to defend your decision to the class!

  • Who are the authors/publishers, and why do you believe they are reliable?
  • What is the relevance of this information to my topic?
  • When was this information published?  Is it considered current?
  • Where does this source gets it's information, does it have a bibliography of sources?
  • Why does this source exist?  What is the point of view I should be aware of?

These are a few of the questions your librarian uses when selecting a resource for this guide, and you are expected to adhere to these same high standards.
