Credible Sources on the Web

Just a sampling of the information you will find using the NYT and other library resources.

Evaluate the Web

Critically evaluate information you find on the Internet. Consider the 5 W's:
  • Who wrote the web pages and are they an authority?
  • What is the purpose of the site. Look to the domain for a clue about purpose (.gov,.com, .edu)
  • When was the site created and updated? Current?
  • Where does the information come from? (publisher or sponsor)
  • Why is this information useful - is it relevant to my research?
