Be savvy consumers of online information and don’t fall for “fake news” and “truthiness.” Use UW Libraries’ research guide to help you evaluate the sources you find online. Not all information is created equal. Before you use or share it, choose what material is the most reliable and factual. Consider, for example, if the source is CRAAP by judging its currency, relevance, authority, accuracy and purpose.
