Why evaluate?

The world wide web is big -- really big.  Google indexes over one trillion pages.  Some of the pages are very useful, some are not.  Some contain factual information, some are hoaxes or are filled with biased information.  Some pages are signed and dated, others are not.

So how do you figure out which websites offer credible information?

This guide will help you learn how to evaluate websites for academic and your personal use.
