good vs. bad sources

September 11th, 2009

Bad historical website:

http://www.straightdope.com/columns/read/621/whats-the-origin-of-uncle-sam

This site is a bad historical source because there is no bibliography, and no reason to be sure that the author did not merely make up the answer.

good historical website:

http://www.loc.gov/exhibits/treasures/trm015.html

This site is from a trustworthy organization (Library of Congress).

good primary source:

http://memory.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/r?ammem/rbpebib:@field(NUMBER+@band(rbpe+2400010a))

This source has the bibliographic information for where the poster was published, and is from a credible source (Library of Congress).

Bad primary source:

http://www.zazzle.com/uncle+sam+posters

There is no way to tell which of these posters are genuine, which are airbrushed from genuine, and which are made up.
