    • General Guidelines
      • The internet is not like a library
        • No established set of rules
        • Not specialists – like trained librarians
        • No organization
      • Most useful as supplementary tool
      • No guarantees that source is reliable or unbiased – anyone can publish
      • Can be a black hole – sources disappear
      • Be patient – the web is often slow
      • Useful information is not always free!
    • Ask yourself these questions:
      • What server did you find the information on?
      • Who wrote or put up the information?
      • What are the credentials of the author or web manager?
      • Could there be a hidden agenda behind this information source?
      • The web is not an encyclopedia!
    • Information Literacy
      • You have the ability to:
      • Know when you need information
      • Know how to find information
      • Know how to evaluate information
      • Know how to process information
      • Know how to use information to make appropriate decisions in your life
