MFA: User Experience Design: Internet Resources

Consider the Source

The internet provides open access to a tremendous amount of information, including peer reviewed, scholarly material.  However, be mindful of your sources. Consider the following:

Authority - Who is the author? What is their point of view?

Purpose - Why was the source created? 

Publication & Format - Where was it published? 

Relevance - How is it relevant to your research? 

Date of Publication - When was it written? 

Documentation - Did they cite their sources? 

Information from University of California Berkeley Library's "Evaluating Resources" guide.
