Help finding or coining a term

A colleague and I are writing a book chapter on social media, and we have been unable to find or make up terms for one distinction we would like to make. What is a good, compact term for 'information that is endorsed or supported by a credentialed expert on the subject or is agreed to be true by a community of experts'?

We are contrasting this with info that people gather by direct or second-hand experience.
Since it's a chapter about social media, it would be entirely appropriate to write an acknowledgment thanking MeFi. :)
