Questions to ask when considering a site…

What does the URL (the address of the website or Internet file) tell you?

Is it somebody’s personal page? Look for a personal name following a tilde (~) a % sign of the words “users” “members” or “people”

What type of domain does it come from?

Government sites: .gov; .mil

Educational sites: .edu

Province/Country codes: .ca; .on; ;qc; .uk

Look at the author of the page

Is the author a person, organization, group, etc.

Are credentials listed?

*in history especially you want to avoid hobbyists and self-proclaimed experts!

How up-to-date is the page? Is the information “stale” (does this affect your research?)

Look at the content of the page

Does the information seem correct, is it organized logically?

Is the page a rant, extreme view, personal opinion?
