posted Mar 6, 2019, 4:31 AM by Central Library   [ updated Mar 19, 2019, 6:14 AM ]

Many of our 'Digital Resources' available here at Central are already vetted, reliable sources ready to be used in research projects.  
If, however, you are not using one of the databases or eBooks, you need to determine the trustworthiness of the site or source you found.
This guide from Ebsco Industries, Inc. will help, or for more information contact one of the Librarians.
