Why evaluate?

  • Not all authors have strong academic credentials
  • Not all information is vetted or reviewed before publication, especially on the Internet
  • The amount of Information - in books, articles, web, radio, tv, etc. - can get overwhelming unless you critically evaluate and filter sources
  • Your professors want you to use scholarly information, but not all information is scholarly
