Think Like a Librarian: Evaluating Internet Resources

The Internet can be a wonderful source of original or primary sources.  Browse the sites we have suggested below. If you do your own searching, determine if it is a credible source by critically applying these criteria:

  1. Accuracy - The information should be researched and show proof that it has been.
  2. Source - Who wrote the information? Look at the domain.  .edu .gov. org .net are valid research sources.
  3. Authority - What are the author's credentials?  (Don't quote from another college freshman's paper.)
  4. Coverage - Does the page have the information you need for your research?
  5. Objectivity - If a work is biased, use it - just make sure your professor knows YOU know. And offer both sides of issues, where applicable.
