This chapter focuses on ways to select resources that are relevant, significant, and trustworthy. In other words, we need to address the issue of authority, which is the trust we grant to reliable sources of information. With so much misinformation and disinformation flooding our society, we need to be extremely careful. How do we handle the question of “bias”? Is it always a bad thing? How important is currency (the most recent information)?
