Selecting & Using Websites

When selecting a website to use for your research look at the site for current information, reliability, and longevity.  Universities, major institutions,and state, local, and federal government sites are reliable.  These are entities that will be on the web day after day, keeping the information current, and gathering it from responsible sources.  Remember some institutions may have their own point of view and take that into account when using the information.  The internet does not have a gate keeper to remind people to update their sites, only post factual information, and urge sites to continue to exist.
