A word about Internet Sources


The Internet is a fantastic place to find great sources, but it is also a fantastic place to find not-so-great sources.

Learning how to evaluate information is one of the most important skills you will learn at ACC. Anyone can publish on the web. The goal is to be proactive about deciding if the information is reliable or contains bad information.


  • The author may be listed at the bottom of the webpage
  • Domains like .edu or .org can be purchased. The URL is not enough 
  • News websites, like newspapers, may not be fact-checked
  • A website set up to make money may have misleading or biased information
