Choosing Credible Sources

Evaluating Sources for Credibility

Before using the sources you find online, be sure to evaluate each source for credibility. Not all sources found through Google searching are credible enough to be used in an academic setting. Looking at each source through the CRAAP lens can help you determine how sound your sources are.

The Valencia College libraries do not welcome solicitation of resources to be added to our LibGuides. This includes but is not limited to vendors, search engine optimizers, placement of ads, products, or any other requests. Our LibGuides are carefully curated resources developed in partnership with faculty, staff, and students to support specific assignments, courses, events, and other related purposes at Valencia College. The Valencia libraries reserve the right to ignore LibGuide resource solicitations, and/or block persistent requests from groups or individuals to add or promote links in our LibGuides.
