From your Librarian
This is the library Course Guide for GEC 112 for Professor Miller. I will be visiting your class this quarter to assist you. Each tab on this guide will assist you in using the correct resources for your assignments.

Watch this short video that explains one of the many reasons why it is so important to evaluate websites.
Your professor has assigned a research assignment. This page is here to help guide you through RELIABLE sources.
What makes a reliable source?
Authority- Who is the author(s)?
Currency- When was it published or how often is a website updated?
Coverage- What kind of information is provided and what kind of sources do they use.
Accuracy-How accurate is the information?
Objectivity – Is the information objective or at least attempts objectivity?
