The material is straightforward and easy to use, telling users what is offered, what the outcomes or goals of the offer materials should be, and why usrs should be interested.  It leans a little toward the intermediate library user, however, rather than the first-time or casual library user.  Language directed more toward first-time users might be more likely to increase usage and attract that clientle.

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.

Technical Remarks:

There are several broken or out-of-date links in the site.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.
