BEWARE! The Enchanted Forest: Perils & Pitfalls of On-line Trees
When is it safe to get information from an on-line tree? Here we will discuss where these trees can be found, how to assess them for reliability, how to cite them, how to use them for clues to further your research, and more. Not all on-line trees are created equal, but most can be evaluated with a few simple steps: don’t become victim to the enchantment of an apparent pot of gold. Good for beginner to intermediate researchers.
