Online References Toolkit: Government Information

Government Information

Government Websites

Government websites are available to anyone with an internet connection and do not require any login credentials to access. Government sources are generally considered more accurate than general online resources, but it is part of a researcher’s due diligence to vet sources in order to verify appropriateness for use in a project (see the Academic Integrity and CRAP Test Guides for details).
