Evaluating your sources: Since there is no overall editor
on the internet, if you select a source using
a general search engine like google or yahoo, it is up to you to evaluate
the quality of the information you gather, using the basic criterion
listed on guides like the START
checklist (available in the library).
General Google searches: For graphics select IMAGES and search
/ To limit searches: TOPIC +chemistry / Government sites only: TOPIC +.gov
time you use someone else's words or ideas, you must give credit to that
source. Assume that websites, like books or journal articles are copyright
protected, so you may use no more than one image or
10% of the information from one site.
