        REMEMBER

        When you need to find information, you have choices about where to look.  

        You can:

        - Use a website

        - Use a book

        - Use an ebook

        - Use a database

        - Interview a person

        Before you start, you need to think about the questions you want to answer.  You should then choose the best resource.  If you need information for a school grade, you should be careful about using websites!

         

        A few more hints:

        Writing a good research paper depends on the quality of your research. The quality of your research depends on the quality of your resources.

        REMEMBER: If you use a search engine, evaluate the websites you find.

         

        Currency Is the website current?  If it is very old, move on.  Facts might have changed.
        Authority

        Is the author an expert on the subject? If you can't figure out who made the website (the person or group), move on.

        Bias Why was the information written? Was it written to inform, persuade, entertain or sell?

        You also should check to see if the information is directly related to your topic.  Just because you find an amazing story or fact doesn't mean it needs to be included in your paper. All information and sources must be related directly to your topic.
