Source Evaluation


Project Description


  • Find and cite two (2) authoritative sources for your topic overview presentation. 
  • Use Noodletools to make, share, and submit your assignment.


  1. Sharpen your online search, evalulation and citation skills
  2. Deepen your knowledge of the setting of Song of Solomon


  • Citations will use MLA Advanced format
  • All sources will be authoritative 


Authoritative sources are created and reviewed by scholars, professional editors, or organizations. You will find them in databases, websites and books.  They include primary sources like original texts, interviews, video, or audio. For a source to be authoritative, you need to know who wrote the material and who has published it.  

The authority of databases and books are easier to determine than websites you find using open Google searches, which require digging and sometimes additional searches of organizations and writers.




NoodleTools helps you organize all your research needs from start to finish.  Create an account, or re-validate your old account. If you have any problems or questions email or stop by and talk to any member of the Learning Commons staff. We are here to help!
