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)
