Coverage - Is it scholarly (look for footnotes and/or a bibiliography) or popular?  

                   Who's the intended audience? (Check the vocabulary, language and tone.)

                   What's the depth/scope?

Accuracy - Are the facts, names, dates, etc. correct?

Objectivity - Is there a bias or particular viewpoint?

Date - Is it recent? (Is that relevant?)

Additional tips for evaluating web sites

  Authority      – Find the author -- not the web designer or site host.

                         If you can’t find (and evaluate) the author, don’t cite the site.                         

  Source        – Domain (url) can be one clue.

  Objectivity   – Is the site trying to sell you something?
