Evaluating Web Resources
An eight-point evaluation checklist from the UC Berkeley Library.
What can the URL tell you?
Who wrote the page? Is he, she, or the authoring institution a qualified authority?
Is it dated? Current, timely?
Is information cited authentic?
Does the page have overall integrity and reliability as a source?
What's the bias?
Could the page or site be ironic, like a satire or a spoof?
If you have questions or reservations, how can you satisfy them?
