Information Literacy Handouts & Resources

Evaluating Resources

It's easy to find information, but is it reliable information? Is it appropriate for your purposes?

Copy one of our Evaluating Information checklists for use in your class.

  • The CRAAP test asks: Does that information belong in your academic project or is it ... CRAAP? Evaluation criteria are: Currency, Relevance, Authority, Accuracy, and Purpose.
  • ASPECT is part of the IRIS information suite created by Clark College. It stands for: Evaluating Information: Examine every A.S.P.E.C.T.: Authority, Sources, Purpose, Evenness of Coverage, and Timeliness.
  • ABC-R is a pared down evaluation checklist that asks: It was easy to find, but is it the right info? Assess: Authority, Bias, Currency, and Relevance.

Online NoodleTools Tutorial

If you would like to offer your students an online version of our introduction to citations and using the NoodleTools citation management tool, it is available as a self-paced Canvas course. Just add a link to the workshop in your class-no special enrollment needed.

Plagiarism & Academic Honesty

The Academic Honesty for Students research guide provides students with a working definition of academic honesty and plagiarism; introduces citations; addresses what students don’t need to cite, unintentional plagiarism, paraphrasing, good work habits, group work, and consequences of academic dishonesty; and directs students to library and online resources and tutorials on citing sources, plagiarism, copyright and fair use, and writing skills. There is also a tab with links to help from a librarian.
