How can you tell if a website is reliable?
In general, follow the CRAAP method to decide whether or not a website is reputable:
Currency -- Is the information timely?
Relevancy -- Does the information answer your research question.
Authority -- Who is the source of the information?
Accuracy -- Does the information seem reliable, truthful, and correct?
Purpose -- Why does this information exist?
