STILL NEED MORE INFORMATION ? ? ? Try searching
. . .
Take a moment to verify the information you
find online. ANYONE can publish ANYTHING on the
web. Just because it is posted on the internet DOES NOT mean
the facts are correct, unbiased or up-to-date.
Consider these questions . . .
Is the author's name easy to find? Can
you email the author?
When was the site last updated? Are the links working?
Is the site part of a university or government organization?
Are the facts similar to facts you found in print sources?
Is the site easy to navigate? Are the pictures helpful?
Is the text well written?
Ask your teacher or librarian if you need help.
Record your bibliographic
citation information on your graphic organizers.
