Evaluating Sources

It is extremely important to evaluate your sources - especially when it comes to websites!  Anyone can publish anything from the Internet. Below are some questions you will want to ask yourself as you evalute your web sources:

  • Authority - Can the author(s) be identified? Any biographical or contact information?  Who is the sponsor or publisher of the website?
  • Currency - When was the site created?  When was the site last updated? If links are provided, do they still work?
  • Content - What is the purpose of the site?  Are sources cited?
