How to evaluate websites
It is a good idea to always be critical of any information you find, but particularly for websites. Anyone can publish information on the Internet, and some sites, such as Wikipedia, are open-source and therefore can be easily edited (and defaced) by users. In general, if information sounds to good to be true, it probably is. If you notice bad grammar, broken links, information presented as factual that you know to be untrue, bias - these are signs that you may not want to use that particular site. The website below is one example of criteria to help you evaluate Internet content.
