Websites and evaluation
The websites you will find on this page were specifically selected by the Library in consultation with your professor to support your research. As a result, you can trust that they will be reliable sources of information.
However, it is important that you always think critically about any source you use. This is particularly important when using sources that you have found on the internet. To help you with this, the College has developed a simple test, the PAARC test, that you can use with any resource.
