Remember …Always Evaluate Your Web Search Results

Each page should be examined and the following questions answered:

  • Who? Who is the authoring agency or individual?
  • What? What is the author's credentials?
  • Where? Where is the author's affiliation?
  • When? When was the page last updated
  • Why? Why is the page in existence? What is the author's purpose?
  • How? How does the page appear?
Remember !!!
  • The Web just does not have it all yet.
  • Most of the premium and fee-accessible content may be hidden.
  • Even the best search engine will only search what is available.
  • Remember that the Web is only the first tool in your arsenal of available resources.
