EasyBib: Student and Educator Resources for Election Season

Election Day is less than two weeks away, and we're sure it's a hot topic of discussion at your school. After hearing great feedback about an earlier blog post, we found some new political resources you might find useful like Politifact and Read more about them here!
Election 2012 with EasyBib
We also pulled data from EasyBib to see how our users are citing sources related to the election. Comparing the past two months, there's been a 66% increase in use of political sources. That's quite a jump! Students are exploring different websites to gather information relating to American politics, which are specified in the blog post, too.
We've gotten feedback this political season that our website evaluation feature has helped students assess political sources that frequently carry bias. Learn more about website evaluation with our School Edition product.
