Librarians recommend that students use the databases listed on the library’s website to search for information.
However, many students Google their topics and use information found on websites for their research papers. Often, these sites contain old or inaccurate information. So, how can a student decide what is a good website? They can use the "CRAAP" Test!
Use the "CRAAP" Test criteria to evaluate the information that you find in print and on websites! If the information doesn't pass the test, you probably should not use it as a source.
