To find a good, scholarly website with authoritative and reliable information, you'll need to evaluate any websites you find. Visit the library's Evaluating Websites page for more information about how to find good websites.
When evaluating websites, first ask yourself: How did you find the website?
- Did a professor or another reliable source recommend it?
- Was it cited in a scholarly or credible source?
- Was it a link from a reputable website?
- Did you find it by using a search engine like Google?
You may also want to consider:
- How do I evaluate a website?
- What is a domain and how to I evaluate websites by domain?
- How do I evaluate a source to determine if it is scholarly or not?
