How to Evaluate Web Resources

This is an excellent guide for evaluating the usefulness and authority of web resources. It provides an infographic that could be converted into a poster or linked to a class website. The guide is broken down into steps, with each one supported by clear examples that demonstrate how to follow the instructions. The descriptions explain how the steps determine reliability and usefulness, and what clues indicate a resource may not be trustworthy. The guide could also be used as a tutorial for walking students through how to evaluate the web resources they use in their research.
