UCONN Library Guides
As long as you have a NetID and password, off-campus access requires no special instructions.
When you try to access a UConn-only resource (such as a research database), you will be prompted to log in using your NetID/password. Once you've logged in, you can open other UConn-only resources without having to login again.
Tip: If you're on a public computer, you'll want to exit the browser to protect your private information (including your NetID & password).

Evaluating Your Sources
Who is the author of your source and what are their credentials?
Who is the publisher and what do you know about them?
When was the source published and how does this affect its usefulness for your purpose?
What type of audience is the author addressing, specialized or general? How does this impact your use of the source?
How extensively does the source cover the topic? Is the information appropriate for your project? Is it either too simple or too complex? Too broad or too specific?
