    Evaluating Websites

    Consider the source--Use recognized authorities.  Can you identify the author?  Know who is responsible for the content.

    Focus on quality--All Web sites are not created equal.  Does the site have an editorial board? Is the information reviewed before it is posted?  Does it have spelling errors?  Is it trying to sell you something?  

    Look for the evidence--Rely on research, not opinion.  Does the site identify the author? Does it rely on testimonials?

    Check for currency--Look for the latest information  Is the information current?

    Beware of bias--What is the purpose? Who is providing the funding? Who pays for the site?

    Protect your privacy--Does the site have a privacy policy and tell you what information they collect?
