This web site provides guidelines on how to direct students to use the Web for research. Suggestions are directed towards instructors on how to use the Internet in instruction. Links to various Web sites are given for students to determine if the sites meet the Web guideline criteria. A bibliography on Web evaluation is also provided.
The resource contains good information for an instructor to share with their students on verifying the validity of a website. Even though the materials are older the "Criteria" are just as applicable today. A few of the links are broken so the "sample" sites need to be updated.
There are several broken or out-of-date links in the site.

Because so much information is available, and because that information can appear to be fairly anonymous,
Because anyone can write a Web page, documents of the widest range of quality, written by authors of the widest range of authority, are available on an even playing field. It is necessary to develop skills to evaluate what you find which is why the site provides criteria that can be used to assess information found on the Internet. Excellent resource.
