Evaluate your Sources

Is it Wikipedia? (Hint: Don't cite Wikipedia.)
Does it have an author?
Is the author a respected, knowlegable person for the topic?
Is the source reputable, like New York Times or Time Magazine?
Did it come from a scholarly place, such as a database or an academic/professional journal?
Did it come from a place with authority, such as a science or government website?
If the first search term doesn't give you what you want,
try a different word that means something similar
!

ex: If "Black Death" doesn't work, try "Black Plague" or "Bubonic Plague"
