Evaluating Websites

Be critical of the contents and the source of any results you obtain from the Web.

Anyone can publish a web page. Some things to look for include:

Accuracy Is there contact information for an author or institution? 
Authority What are the author's credentials? Is the author(s) qualified to write this document?
Objectivity Are there opinions expressed by the author? Any advertisement?
Currency When was this produced? When was it last updated? Any broken links?
Coverage Is the information provided cited properly? Can view without having to download additional software, no additional fees?
