Question and answer
Why do you think it is important to evaluate information for relevancy, reliability, and bias?
Relevance is an important aspect of information quality, this will show if the information you're using is relevant to the topic you're writing about. Also you should consider the reliability of the source and the information you're using. [ [ All these ensure that you use is reliable, relevant and it's not bias in any way. Evaluating information encourages you to think critically about the
reliability, validity, accuracy, authority, timeliness, point of view or bias of information sources. Just because a book, article, or website matches your search criteria and thus seems, at face value, to be relevant to your research, does not mean that it is necessarily a reliable source of information. It is important to remember that sources of information comprising the Library's print and electronic collections have already been evaluated for inclusion among the Llbrary's resources. However, this does not necessarily mean that these sources are relevant to your research This does not necessarily apply to sources of information on the Web for the general public. Many of us with Internet/Web accounts are potential publishers of websites; most of this content is published without editorial review. Think about it. Many resources are available to help with evaluating web pages. ] ]

what is relevance
Weegy: Credibility = The quality of being trusted. Relevance = the relation of something to the matter at hand User: why should we depend on reliabilty Weegy: In some measure, the reliability of our ideas may depend on the source from which they are derived. [ Descartes held that there are only three possibilities: all of our ideas are either adventitious (entering the mind from the outside world) or factitious (manufactured by the mind itself) or innate (inscribed on the mind by god). (Med. III) But I don't yet know that there is an outside world, and I can imagine almost anything, so everything depends on whether god exists and deceives me. ........... ] (More)
