Craap

  1. 1. Where have you gotten information today? (Make a list!) How do you judge if the information is good?
  2. 2. Is it CRAAP? Finding the good stuff in the library and beyond
  3. 3. Currency Relevance Authority Accuracy Purpose How old is the info? Is it still valid? Are you the intended audience? Does the info fit your needs? Who published the information? Do you trust them? Is the info reliable and correct? Are there citations? Why was the info created? To inform, educate, sell, convince?
  4. 4. Things to Remember: Thing 1: The Library has three floors • Ground Floor (where we are) • Main Floor (Circulation and Ask Here) • Second Floor (Books and Quiet Study)
  5. 5. Thing 2: Use the library website • libguides.montevallo.edu
  6. 6. Thing 3: The librarians are your friends… whether you like it or not.
