Evaluating Websites: Home


This guide will offer some of the tools required to successfully evaluate websites.

Unlike published materials, which go through an editorial process, most of the material found on the web has been posted without any editorial assessment. As a result, much of what you will find on the web is of questionable quality, accuracy, and authority.

Knowing what questions to ask and what characteristics to look for will help you evaluate websites and identify authoritative websites. Please click on each of the tabs located above for further details.

If you have any questions, please contact our staff at the Reference Desk and we will help you further.
