Accuracy is important because errors and untruths distort a line of reasoning.
When you present inaccurate information, you undermine your own credibility.
Are there statements you know to be false?
Are there errors in spelling, punctuation, or grammar?
Was the information reviewed by editors or subject experts before it was published?
What citations or references support the author's claims?
What do other people have to say about the topic?
Search for peer reviewed articles in Academic Search Premier and Academic OneFile.
Search for book reviews.
If possible, verify some of the information in another reputable source (e.g. encyclopedia, journal, book, or web site).
