Find Information

STEP 3:  LOCATION AND ACCESS

Ask, "Where is each source?  Where is the information in each source?"

  • Access appropriate information systems
  • Search for sources for information about your topic
  • Determine if each source is usable

Reminders about Websites for Academic Projects

Because your academic project calls for high-quality, credible sources, remember...

  • DO NOT use Wikipedia or other user-generated-content sites, where the authority of the author is not known.  (However, you can check out Wikipedia articles for links to high-quality websites!)
  • AVOID using blogs as sources, unless the author of the blog is clearly an expert in the field or otherwise well qualified to share information
  • AVOID using sources that are really advertisements for products.  Their reason for existence is to make money, not to provide unbiased information!
