When evaluating an information resource, keep its currency in mind to ensure that it is not obsolete or superseded with new information.
- Take note of when it was published.
- If you find the information on a website, examine whether or not an archive of older materials is available. If so, notice how far back it goes. Be aware of the time span available to you.
- Depending on your requirements, either historical orcurrent, up-to-the-minute information may be more appropriate. Often, you'll need both.
