*Be skeptical when evaluating any information source.
*This is especially true for World Wide Web pages, because they are less likely to be subject to quality control measures such as editorial oversight.
*Anyone can put information on the Internet.
Consider these factors when evaluating a source:
Currency - How current is the information?
Relevance - Does this source really fit in? Does it relate to your topic?
Authority - Who wrote or published your source? What are their credentials?
Accuracy - How does your source hold up? Does the information seem correct? Is there outside support?
Purpose - Why was your source written - to inform, persuade, or sell?
