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?
