Websites: Use Good Ones, Not Bad Ones!

You may find that you have a lot of freedom in finding resources for your papers. That is a good thing!

We know that the first place you'll go is online -- probably to Google, Yahoo, or Bing. That's fine. That's not a bad thing.

What IS a bad thing is if you use any old website without checking to make sure that it is a good one. Use the following as guidelines in determining whether to use a website for your paper.

  • Who made it: a business, a branch of government, a non-profit organization, the military, a professional association....?
  • Are they credible and reliable?
  • When was it last updated?
  • What is the purpose of the website? Is it trying to sell you something?
  • Are there a lot of ads?

A word about Wikipedia: librarians love Wikipedia. Professors love Wikipedia. Everyone loves it. It is a great starting point. BUT, it is generally NOT acceptable to cite Wikipedia in a college-level paper unless your professor has said that it is OK.
