Is your Information Reliable and Accurate? : Use the CRAAP Test to Evaluate Information Sources
From fake news stories to predatory publishers, how do you know the info you found on the web is the real thing? We all know that anyone can publish on the web; but how do you know it’s reliable and accurate? When you’re making health care decisions, this becomes even more important.
Your Librarians have developed a CRAAP Detector to help you evaluate information and its sources.
Currency - The timeliness of the information
Relevance - The usefulness of the information for your needs
Authority - The source of the information
Accuracy - The correctness and reliability of the information
Purpose - The reason for the information
