Sites for Finding and Evaluating Web Sites

Evaluating Web Sites

Search engines like Google find Web sites of all levels of quality.

These Web sites were chosen by your librarian based on the following criteria. Keep these things in mind when deciding if a Web page is reliable and appropriate for your research.

  • credible authorship
  • objectivity
  • accuracy
  • recent updates
  • educational purpose

Always check with your instructor to find out if you can use free (non-Library) Web sites for your assignments. And if looking for journal articles, library databases are the most efficient tool for searching. See the Find Articles tab.
