    When looking at sources always look at the date it was produced, then relate it your timeframe and topic, for example, if your topic is about the 1800's but you have a source from 1940 and one from 2015 you need to take into account which is more reliable.
    Other things to look at are:
    Compare all sources together
    Pick out key words or key images
    Is it biased?
    What does this tell you in relation to the topic
    Always back up a point form the source with factual knowledge and your own opinion
    Try to quote using the right punctuation.
