dc.description.abstractThe wonderful thing about the internet is that anyone can publish on the web; but, total access facilitation does not make everyone an expert! Unlike books and journals that the library purchases, web resources rarely have editors or fact checkers. Understandably, due to the all inclusiveness of the web there are a plethora of fraudulent websites available and the quality of information and data varying greatly. Generally speaking, there are no web standards to ensure accuracy of information and data, but the following set of questions, when applied by students to a website, will help them to make a critical evaluation about the validity and appropriateness of internet resources.en_US
