Search Engines that assess credibility

*EASYBIB Research Tab go to EasyBib, open your project, click “Bibliography” and then go to the top and select “Research.” The results will say “credible” in green if it is a reliable resource.

Sweet Search – this search engine is curated by educators and sifts out some of the junk, blogs etc, but it is not perfect. You may have to assess some of the results yourself. Use your best judgement and use the Accuracy and Credibility pathfinder to help.
