What About Wikipedia?

Wikipedia is a nice place to start.

Use it to:

  • explore background
  • learn new search terms
  • learn how something works
  • discover some secrets
  • gain new insights

Strategies with Wikipedia:

  • Visit the external links at the bottom of the page
  • Explore the references in the articles (and then visit those references)
  • After you learn new terms and ideas, then visit our Databases

Use Wikipedia as a way to inform your research!

 

RADCAB- Website Evaluation

RADCAB”™ is a great checklist to think about when using websites. Created by Karen M. Christensson, each link leads to her website going into further detail.

  Is the information relevant to the question at hand? Am I on the right track?

  Is the information suitable to my age and core values?

  How much information do I need? Is the depth of coverage adequate?

 When was the information published or last updated?

 Who is the author of the information? What are his or her qualifications?

  Why was this information written? Was it written to inform me, persuade me, entertain me, or sell me something?

 

Should I Cite Google as a Source?

Google is not an expert resource; it only leads you to sources (some expert, many not).

You must be the expert evaluator of the sources you find, not Google.

"Sources" are:

  • articles
  • websites
  • books
  • encyclopedias
  • dictionaries
  • movies
  • blogs
  • interviews
  • songs
  • poems
  • essays
  • letters

You must not cite Google; you must cite the resource your Google search takes you to.

Google is a quick, efficient, and simple way to gather information on just about any topic, but the quality and accuracy of the information is not always reliable.
