How do I evaluate web sources?

Due to technical challenges specific to Canadore College with the Omni migration, beginning December 13, Canadore library users will experience difficulty accessing services linked with library accounts, primarily renewals and library holds.

We are working with Canadore College to resolve the issue. We anticipate access to library resources and services for Canadore library users will be in operation by January, 2020. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for understanding. For further information, contact: Ed Driedger (705-474-3450 x 4545 or edd@nipissingu.ca).


There is a lot of good information on the World Wide Web, but there is also a lot of misinformation.  How can you tell the difference?  There are many excellent guides to help you evaluate resources you find online.  The following are a few sites to get you started:
