Evaluating Websites

Remember to always evaluate a website before using it for research purposes. 

Some criteria for evaluating websites include:

  • Accuracy
  • Authority
  • Coverage
  • Currency
  • Objectivity
  • Purpose
  • Support 


You can always ask a librarian or your professor for an opinion about a specific website as well.

(Ruth Szpunar at DePauw University)

What is grey literature? The Fourth International Conference on Grey Literature (1999) defined grey literature thusly: "That which is produced on all levels of government, academics, business and industry in print and electronic formats, but which is not controlled by commercial publishers."
