Evaluating Information

Whatever information you find you will need to evaluate it in terms of its relevancy to your work and also its quality and accuracy.

This is particularly important when using information from the Internet because anyone can publish on the Web. The resources listed below offer guides and tips on what to look out for.

  • Safari - The Open University's guide to skills in accessing, finding and reviewing information.
  • Cornell University Library offer guidance in critically analysing information sources.
