Evaluating Websites

Welcome to the research guide for Evaluating Websites, which means to look critically at websites you visit and the information they provide. This guide describes five important criteria for determining how useful a website is for your needs. If you have any trouble understanding or applying these criteria, please ask a librarian for help.

The Free Web versus Databases

Databases are:

  • Scholarly
