Cook Library's Guide to the Web

Web Evaluation: authorship
What to look for:
- Is an author listed? (either an individual or organization)
- What are his/her credentials? Is the author an expert in this field?
- Is there a link to information about the author or sponsor?
- Is contact information for the author or sponsor listed anywhere?
You should be very skeptical of any information source that does not list an author (either an individual or a corporation).
