Asian Studies: Internet Sources

Finding Sources on the Internet

The library has great resources and is your starting point for research. The Internet, on the other hand, has value in the vast amount of information available, which differs from library materials.

The video and CRAAP test below are tools to help you determine whether you can trust a source.
