Evaluating Websites

Websites can be used for research and can be an important part of your research.  However, it is important to evaluate websites before using the information that you receive from them.  It is unfortunate, but one never knows whether the information is correct, unbiased, up to date, etc. without first evaluating the site.  There are ways to make sure that the websites that look good, really are good. 

When looking at websites, you want to consider the criteria for evaluating websites.  You can find those by taking a look at the following two websites.  Use these criteria each time you look at a website to see if it is research-worthy.
