A very brief checklist for evaluating Internet sites. The original list dates back almost two decades ago, with the most recent revision a decade ago. The material is not incorrect or faulty, but very scant, with no discussion about the underlying philosophy that would make an evaluation toll more robust. Users familiar with such evaluations will probably find this useful to a degree. But unwary users will need more to gain a great grasp of why such evaluations are necessary.

Very effective content. Would you consider updating the format? Perhaps employ animation or screen shots--and more up-to-date fonts and page design so as to attract undergraduates?

Good Site. I have librarians that come in and present material of the same manner. This site covers what they do.

One of the topics I teach in my Computer Literacy class is evaluating web sites.
I'm going to have my students use this site. I like the site because it
presents criteria for evaluation and then has the student evaluate sites and
"grades" those evaluations. It is a fun site!
