Finding information is just the first step. Next you need to evaluate what you find. This guide on evaluation discusses:
- General evaluation questions to ask about all information
- Evaluating popular news and websites
- Types of scholarly literature (including primary and secondary articles in the sciences, systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and grey literature)
- Peer review
- Reading science information
Passkey & Other Tools from the Library
The Thesis Tool allows you to choose from a list of academic disciplines, and find theses in the library catalog.
The off-campus Passkey bookmarklet helps you connect to journal articles and e-books without going through the library web site. Very useful to install if you use Google Scholar!
CUL New Books lists books, e-books, and other monographs that have recently been added to the Cornell University Library collections.
