Introduction

Print materials generally have some type of editorial review before being published--but anyone can create and publish a web site. Information published on the web can be facts, opinions, stories, interpretations, or parodies. It may be reliable or purposely false; it may be there to persuade you to buy an item or particular idea or change your attitude or belief. BE WARY when searching for information on the WWW.

Use the criteria and hints from the tabs, at the top of this guide, to evaluate web sites.

Much of the same criteria can be used for print materials. For additional considerations, see:
