Evaluating Sources: More about Information Literacy

Find out who is providing the content and why. Get information from different sources. Be skeptical.

Information Literacy = Searching Savvy

Information Literacy: Being able to define what you need, then find, choose, and use information well.
Define your information need - Narrow down, or broaden as needed

Find information efficiently - Library databases

Choose information - Is it worthy? 
Who says so?  Where did the information come from?  Why is the information being published or promoted? Follow the Money.  Who benefits?
Use information ethically by citing sources.
