Are you a wise consumer of information? Do you know what the content is of the resource you are searching?
What are "scholarly" or "peer-reviewed" articles?
The CAARP Test is a list of questions that can help you evaluate the information you locate.
Currency: the timeliness of the information
Authority: the source of the information
Accuracy: the reliability, truthfulness, and correctness of the content
Relevance: the importance of the information for your needs
Purpose: the reason the information exists
The CRAAP test was developed by librarians at California State University, Chico. It was modified for visual connection here.
