Use internet search engines to explore your topic and get ideas. Ask yourself -
Warning! At this point, don't let your Internet searching take over your time and energy. Remember, you have lots of other work to do. Search engines rank results by MONEY and POPULARITY, not by quality, credibility, reliability, authority - for that, you need library resources.
Google may be the most popular search engine, but it's not the only one - and using different search engines can give you different results!
Other Clues, additional points to consider, and questions to ask:
Sometimes you will find articles with similar viewpoints across different sources or sites. This is normal; people who agree tend to collect the same or similar defenses of their viewpoints. However, be aware that repetition of a lie as a way to get people to believe the lie is a standard technique of propaganda. Also, if you see the exact same language, word for word, showing up in different sources, that should be a big warning flag that this information is being artificially pushed or disseminated for some nefarious motive, or, it may be a robot sending that post or tweet or article, or it might be a fake website set up to collect ad clicks. All trash.
There are many different checklists to help you evaluate sources of information. Below are a few of the most popular. Using the same checklist to consistently evaluate all of your sources can save time and effort, and help you to compare sources. (However, there is a downside - by using the same checklist all the time, you could still miss something important that's not on that particular list.)
Be aware that some sources, like Wikipedia, may pass these initial tests but still may not be acceptable for college level academic research assignments. Check with your professor or librarian for advice and guidance. Be skeptical and be critical. You may still have concerns. If so, follow those concerns. Look for other clues, ask more pointed questions, and keep checking.
