Looking for:
Reliable information online?
How do you find reliable information online? Libraries are in the business of helping people find good information. It's such an important topic for us that we'd like to re-run this post on how to evaluate information online.

Is it true? It can be hard to know if what you read online is true. One way to find more reliable information is to use the library's  online resources - with articles compiled from relevant encyclopedias, handbooks and reference resources, as well as print publications like newspapers and magazines. Log in to these resources from home using your library card and PIN numbers (except where noted "In-library use only").
No matter where you find your information, it's always good to know how to evaluate that information for reliability. Click here for some tips for determining whether what you're reading is trustworthy.
