Evaluate Sources

The required and recommended information sources are already vetted by the QVCC librarian. YOU are responsible for evaluating the credibility of any additional source you find on your own. The credibility of images is your responsibility, too. Photo management sites do not assume responsibility for accuracy or authenticity. Try the C.R.A.A.P. method to evaluate web and image sources.
