Savvy Researcher Workshops - University Library

What makes a trustworthy source? Learn to wade through the various types of publications available to you as a researcher, and work to start identifying fallacies and viewpoints present in academic and journalistic writing. This hands-on workshop is a great introduction to analyzing the biases we encounter every day. http://guides.library.illinois.edu/mediabias
