Search and Evaluate Web Resources

Finding and Evaluating Web Resources

There are many different Search Engines that are used to search the World Wide Web.

The LRC recommends either Metacrawler , Google , or ixquick.com.

Often, you will find other connecting links from one website to others that may be relevant to your topic. You should however always evaluate each site as far as its credibility and usefulness in your research. For a good guide to evaluating web sites, see http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/TeachingLib/Guides/Internet/webeval-QuestionsToAsk.pdf
