Internet research : what's credible?( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the Internet, it's incredibly easy, and fast, to research a topic with a few simple keystrokes. But it's also incredibly easy to end up with unreliable and non-credible information that makes your research efforts fruitless. With an overwhelming abundance of options after doing an Internet search, how can you tell which results are reliable? In this video, viewers will learn strategies for narrowing down results and honing in on credible sources of information online. Experts such as college professors and media librarians offer advice, while students share their own experiences. A special section on one of today's most popular research sites - Wikipedia - investigates whether it's trustworthy or not for academic or professional use.

And the town of Burning Springs in Wirt County plays a significant historical role as well."--MotionMasters website
