GEOG 1410: Finding and Evaluating Information: Home

Assignment Overview

For this assignment, you will need to find, evaluate, and compare two different types of information.

1.) First, you will evaluate a web resource found using some of the Google tricks that we discussed during class.

2.) Next, you will use some of the library resources we covered (which can be found on the Find Information tab on this research guide) to locate an academic source.

3.) The final step in the project will be to evaluate the sources using the criteria presented on the Evaluate tab. Remember that evaluating sources is never a black-and-white issue. The goal is to use the criteria on the tab as a general way to structure your evaluation.
