Q. How do I find author's credentials

Answer

That depends on the information source that you have. FT Journal articles -look at beginning or end of the article. Book - back cover or book jacket.  For additional information on Source Evaluation, please consult our General Research Library Guide, created by Paula Moskowitz, at the link listed below.  This guide discusses such source evaluation issues as Detecting Bias in the News Media and  Determining Point of View, as well as facets of the CRAPP Test: Credibility, Relevance,  Authority, Point of View and Purpose.
