Off-Campus Resources

This guide will direct students to materials available online that do not require NMHU credentials.

Evaluating Resources

All resources utilized in research should be evaluated for credibility. This includes: books, journal articles, websites, photographs, newspapers, videos, and more. Question everything.

Ask questions such as:

Who wrote it?

Who published it?

Where does the information come from? What sources does the resource cite?

Does the resource seem to have a bias?

How old is the resource?

Are there good reviews of the resource?

Will my audience accept this resources as reliable?
