The question everyone asks librarians is, "How do I find good sources?" The answer nobody likes to hear is, "it depends." What makes a source "good" depends heavily on what you're using that source for. Although we'll mostly talk about this in the context of writing, all of these same ideas apply to other forms of creating like filming videos or hosting a podcast.
The following two activities will walk you through evaluating the creator, audience, medium, and purpose of both your own writing as well as the sources you'll use to support your writing. Evaluating your own writing first is essential for figuring out which sources you've evaluated are the best ones to use in your own writing - choosing a source based on how well it meets your needs is far better than finding a source and then trying to figure out how to use it. Click the hotspots in the images below to learn some questions you can ask yourself about both your own writing and the sources you find.
