How do I know what to use?

To know what is the best information to use for your assignment requires you to evaluate the results of your search. This is an important part of the Information Searching Lifecycle. The first step is to evaluate your results while you are still in the searching phase. This allows you to refine and adapt your search to find the information types and amounts that you identified in your preparation.

Once you have found enough of the relevant information you require, evaluate each source against a set criteria to ensure that it is current, credible and fit for purpose.
