Evaluating Websites
Part I: Look at one or more of these university sites for help in assessing materials.

Cornell University Library:

http://www.library.cornell.edu/olinuris/ref/research/webeval.html#eval

Berkeley: http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/TeachingLib/Guides/Internet/Evaluate.html

Ithaca College: http://www.ithaca.edu/library/training/think.html
Part II. Examine the website you have been assigned, using the criteria you’ve gathered from these library sites above to determine if your site is a good source for an academic essay. Who is responsible for the site? What credentials do they have? Do they give you references (e.g. a bibliography) for their statements? Materials which are presented by an overtly political or commercial site might still be useful, but you need to be aware of the slant or purpose and take that into consideration.
Write up a page or so explaining the basis for your evaluation, that is, explaining why you think it is good or not. Print your evaluation. We’ll then discuss these.
