Cook Library's Guide to the Web
Web Evaluation: usability
What to look for:
- Is the site easy to navigate?
- Do the links work?
- Are spelling and grammar correct?
- Are the pages clear and uncluttered?
- Does the site provide a way to search its content?
The visual look of a website has no bearing on the quality of information. Professional-looking websites may sometimes be poor sources of information.
