  1. Authority control - authorship - who, affiliation, where
  2. Currency - note the date, the update, does it reflect the right period of time
  3. Evaluate the source - establish criteria that is meaningful to covering the topic
  4. Citing Internet resources - URL & date of the search
  5. Capturing and citing
  6. Copying

Copying/ Printing at the Libraries

Your UCI PhotoID will serve as your copy card for copying and xeroxing at the UCI Libraries.  It requires that money be added to it by inserting it in one of the Regenerator machines found ini the copy service units at each of the UCI Libraries.  Enter a few dollars at a time and add to it when it is depleted.  Costs will be debited at the rate of 8 cents per copy or xerox made; 12 cents per page of printing.
