Let's wrap up the process of evaluating

 

Think about information resources as “evidence”.
Viewing information as a tool to prove a point or support an argument is a useful starting point for evaluation.

Don’t assume that one format of information is better than others.
All kinds of information should be evaluated carefully, including books, articles, and web sites.

Evaluation is an art, not a science.
There is no “one size fits all” set of guidelines for this important activity.
