Q. How do I know whether a source is credible?
Library subscription databases contain article citations from credible and venerable sources, many of which are not available elsewhere. This means that when you run a search, the information you find is more accurate, current, and reliable than what you would find via a Web search using Google or other search engine.
There are many criteria that can be used to determine whether or not information from a source is credible. The following short videos and tutorials help explain evaluation of sources, bias and peer review. Another handy tool to verify the accuracy and credibility of resources is the P.R.O.V.E.N. source evaluation process.
