Tips for Evaluating Internet Sources
What is the source? Who is the author?
Is the site associated with a company or organization? What is the domain (.org, .com, .edu, etc.)? What does that tell you about the site?
Is the focus of the site sales (are there ads and ordering information)?
If so, how does that impact the information/does it add bias?
What is the date, or is there a date listed? If there is no date listed, does that impact your research? If it is an older date, does that matter?
Are there links to other information? Are the links helpful, or do they link to sales/ordering information?
Is there a reference list?What else on the site helps you determine if it is useful?
