Evaluating Process

Use the following to help establish a baseline of what is a "credible" source.

Compare results

If it is a web page:
Is the web page as good as (or better than) what I could find in journal/magazine articles or other published literature that is not on the free, general web?

If it is an article:
Is the article as good as (or better than) other articles I may be able to find?

Ask yourself:
Do I need to change my search terms?

Do I need general or a specific subject database?
