Choosing Credible Video Sources

When searching for educational video sources here are some criteria for verifying the credibility of the source:

  • Check the "About" section of the source.  Does it give specific information about the creator and/or the publishing organization?
    • If adequate information is not available, you may need to so some extra searching to find out who is creating this content, to determine if there is an inherent bias, or if the creators credentials are lacking.
  • Has this source been cited by other credible sources?
  • Generally all resources within Gateway databases are credible, but some questions may still need to be asked about bias, opinions expressed, or other irrelevant content
