Conceptualizing the authority of information sources
We are often told to rely on authoritative sources when working on a research paper – but what do we mean by authority? And where does authority come from? In this session, we will do a deep dive into this important concept. The importance of approaching authority with an attitude of informed skepticism will be emphasized. Tips will also be given on using Library resources to find and evaluate authoritative information.
