Library Sources, Credibility & Finding the Good Stuff: Home

Finding credible resources through library databases and evaluating the quality of information you find anywhere.

Finding the Good Stuff

Finding information is not hard - people put all sorts of information online and search engines like Google make it easy to find. In fact, social media may make it difficult to avoid!

The trick is finding the right information - how to get the good stuff among all the information that is available. This guide will highlight some tools available to UI students and talk about choosing the information that best meets your needs.

On the right you will find my contact information. I encourage you to contact me or a librarian in your major and set up an appointment for one-on-one research help. You can also take advantage of The SEAM on the second floor of the Main Library. Grad students are available from Sun. through Thurs. from 5P.M.-9P.M. for drop-in research help.

This is your library and we are here to help!
