Prof. Seid; Principles of Teaching Health Care - SPRING 2020: Evaluating Websites: What to Look For

Evaluating Websites

What to Look For

It is easy to find thousands, if not millions, of websites geared to your topic.

The challenge is to find RELEVANT, CREDIBLE websites.

  • The trick is to know who is responsible for the content information on the site.
  • If you cannot find a name or agency responsible, don't use the site.
  • Check for dates.  Some pages are put up and never revised.  In the health areas you need to know the most up-to-date information.
  • Check for dates.  Some pages may be quite new and go away very quickly.  Make a copy of the first page of your website.
