The CRAAP Test

With resources like Google at our fingertips, information isn't hard to find. The challenge is to determine whether the information is credible and trustworthy. Is it factual? Biased? Relevant to your topic?  Web sources can be particularly hard to evaluate, so librarians have developed this handy acronym to help you determine if a source may be CRAAP.
