IDEA 301 Foundations of Project Development: Logistical Information

Web Resources

If you are trying to nail down project logistics--How much will film cost for my project? What is the easiest way to drive to an interview location?--you may find yourself turning to a tool like Google rather than the library. That's okay! There are information needs for which the library is not the best match. 

However, there is a lot of poor quality information on the internet. Keep in mind the SIFT method for assessing websites and articles:

  • Stop
  • Investigate the source
  • Find better coverage
  • Trace claims, quotes, and media to the original context

Use this source to learn more: (it focuses on COVID misinformation, but the method is useful for all hot button topics!)
