When evaluating whether a web page would be a trustworthy source of information for a paper or project, it’s important to consider the following factors:

• The site’s author
• Its publisher
• The purpose of the site
• The accuracy of the information on the site
• The site’s timeliness (date of last revision, etc.)
• Whether the information is suitable for your paper or project
• How unique is the site?

For a complete explanation, check out the Library’s CRAAP Guide to Evaluating Web Information.
