    • Use CRAAP to detect crappy sites:
      • C: Currency (when was the site made?)
      • R: Relevance (does it really suit your needs?)
      • A: Authority (is the author/creator and expert?)
      • A: Accuracy (do they cite their sources?)
      • P: Purpose (what is the intent of the site?)
