Websites Print Page


Consider the source -- 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? 

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

Check for currency -- Look for a publication date.  Is the information current?

Beware of bias -- What is the purpose of this site? Who provides the funding?
