 How do I know if something is true or accurate?
  • Look at the date the web site was last updated.  If it hasn't been updated for months or years, it's probably not a good source
  • Look for information about the author of the web site.  Search for information about the author to see if he/she is an "expert"
  • Use trusted search engines like the ones below
  • Make sure you find the same facts on different web sites.  If you get different answers, one or more of your sources are wrong
