Information Sources

When starting research on any topic, it's crucial to get in the habit of questioning the sources that you find. Of each source, ask:

  • Who is the author of the source of information?
  • Who is the audience for this source of information?
  • What is the purpose of this source of information? (To inform, entertain, or educate?)
