About This Workshop

The Live Zoom Workshop, Evaluating Online Sources for College Research, will be held on April 19, 2022 at 12pm. You must first register, at the Zoom link above, to gain access to the workshop.

A video recording of the workshop will be available April 25 through May 20 for Asynchronous Workshops. This is for students who are unable to attend the Live Zoom event. 

About this workshop:

Evaluating Online Sources for College Research is a newly-developed library workshop which discusses some of the issues that students face when using Google and Wikipedia to conduct their research. By introducing fact-checking methods ("SIFT" and lateral reading), students will learn how to check online sources for reliability and credibility.   

What to expect:

The workshop is a 45 minute participatory Zoom lesson, with a student quiz at the end. Completion of the quiz is required to receive credit for attending the workshop (a digital badge will be sent to you, which will act as a certificate of completion).
