Evaluating information: currency

Simple Global Current Event imageChoosing sources is comparison shopping for articles. 

What criteria - what factors - can/should we consider in comparing and choosing sources?

One such factor is currency. What is currency? What does it mean? What does it look like? How do we recognize or search for current articles?

Always be alert to time:  When was the article or book or website published? What time does the text/content address? Do these times match your research needs?
