Thinking About Information Integrity

Evaluating the quality, accuracy, and integrity of information is something you are already doing!  Each day, we make judgments about the information we use. If you ever think: Here's a shady-looking website...that Facebook profile looks fake....This story is from the National Enquirer.... then you've got skills for thinking critically about information! 

Academic work requires rigorous evaluation of information. Take your critical evaluation skills to the next level by exploring some of the tools on this guide, asking questions, and looking deeply.  

Try out some online fact-checkers, print our handy checklist,  and call, email, or stop by the library for personalized help with evaluating information.
