Evaluating Websites

Remember to always evaluate a website before using it for research purposes.

Some criteria for evaluating websites include:

  • Accuracy (is the info correct?)
  • Authority (is the info supplied by a qualified figure?)
  • Currency (is the info out of date?)
  • Objectivity (is the info free of subjective or biased tone/language? if not, can you identify the author's position?)
  • Purpose (what purpose does the info being shared serve? entertainment? informational? promotional?)
  • Support (is there supporting evidence for the statements made?)

You can always ask a librarian or your professor for an opinion about a specific website.
