Cook Library's Guide to the Web
Web Evaluation: currency
What to look for:
- Is a publication date listed?
Is the information up-to-date?
- In some areas (technology, medicine, law...) information can become outdated quickly.
- Are the links well chosen and up-to-date?
Publication date can also refer to the copyright date or the date a resource was last updated.
Be skeptical of resources that do not list any type of publication date.
