Communication: Internet Resources

a guide to help students find library resources in the study of communication

Evaluating Online Sources

The Internet can provide access to much useful information; however, users should evaluate the quality of each web site consulted. Unlike print sources, there are no quality standards for publication.

As with print publications you should be aware of:

  • Authorship and affiliations
  • Author qualifications
  • Bias and special interest
  • Publication Information

Boston College's University Libraries has posted  a list of questions to ask yourself when you evaluate a web site or web pages.
