Three basic qualities your supporting materials should have are:
- accuracy - they should be true,
- relevancy - they should apply directly to your topic,
- reliability - the information should be from a source your audience can trust.
- Get your sources from will a published source or from an organization or agency you can rely on;
- Published and reliable sources are available on the web but they can be difficult to find if mixed in with a bunch of "junk";
- An easier place to get published and reliable sources;
- Go to the library web page & click on the Article tab then just type in your search.
