Look for high quality sources when conducting your research.  Here are a few pointers: 

A high quality source 
                        is written by a knowledgable author/expert in the field          

                        is unbiased and does not push an agenda

                            has been published/peer reviewed.

                            is either of a time period (historical) or up to date (contemporary).

                            is free of distracting ads or graphics

                            provides links to other reputable sources.

                            provides citations or is easy to cite

****When using the internet, remember that the better sites will likely end in ".org", “.edu” or “.gov”.

 

Capstone Projects will require you to use multiple and diverse sources of information.
