The evaluation of sources is a critical component of historical research.  You need to ensure that you are aware of any biases present, intentional or not.  You should examine your sources to determine information about the author and his/her credentials, the audience, message, and time period.  The following page provides two methods of source evaluation and links to Gumberg and outside resources that can help you in this process.
