Information Literacy

This is a learning guide designed to teach students about information literacy and why it matters.

Peer Review

Your instructor might tell you that you need to find sources for your paper that are peer reviewed. This means that the information source (usually a journal article) has been evaluated by a panel of experts in the field, and it meets certain standards of validity and quality. It's important to use peer reviewed sources because you want your paper to be based on high quality research and the best evidence. When you search for sources using the library search, filter your search results so that you only get results that have been peer reviewed.
