When looking for information about a topic, or even just browsing the internet, it's always a good reminder to evaluate the resources we run into to make sure we can trust them. The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) published some practical recommendations that can help in the process. Here is what we need to check:

  • Who is the source?
  • Who is the author?
  • What is there beyond the title or the headline?
  • Does it reference other sources?
  • Is it current?
  • Is it serious?
  • Are you being objective?
