Pandemic Intro

Due to Quebec government and university directives, McGill campuses have been closed since March 2020. As a result, all library branches are closed until further notice. Library staff continue to provide virtual reference during service hours. Amanda and Dawn are available via email and virtual consultation.

Using Authoritative Sources

Authoritative Sources

  • Scholarly, peer-reviewed articles are considered authoritative.
  • Articles from major news outlets are considered authoritative.
  • But what about other kinds of information? You may also use books, interviews, data from government and non-governmental agencies and more. 
  • You need to evaluate whether the information you find is coming from an authoritative source.
    • What is the expertise of the source?
    • How accurate is the information?
      • Are sources of ideas and facts properly cited? Are they reliable?
    • Why was the information produced?
      • To entertain? To sell something? To advance a specific agenda?
    • How are you using the information?
