Evaluating What You Find

You've found a page, but is it any good? Consider the criteria provided here and on the related pages linked from this guide.

Evaluating Internet Resources
Helpful ideas from the librarians here at Mudd Library.

Evaluation of Information Sources
An extensive listing of pages detailing criteria for evaluating web pages. Includes a listing of criteria used by specific guides, like the selection criteria used by the ipl2 and the Scout Report.

Parsing the URL
One of the simplest ways to find information you can use to evaluate a site.


Citing What You Find

Citing Electronic Documents
Some would assume that uncredited material on the web is 1) in the public domain and 2) doesn't require a citation. They would be wrong. This page provides guidance on citing electronic documents and links to other guides, some on specific styles of documentation.



The internet resources listed in this guide were chosen for the relevant coverage they provide. Direct links are provided to web pages and searchable databases.

The Webwise Guide to Searching is a handy resource to help you find the best information possible on the web.  

As always, if you have any questions be sure to ask a Reference Librarian.
