Evaluating Websites and Online Resources

  ●  Some additional questions to use in evaluating websites

      1.  Is there a medical/scientific advisory board?  Look for an 'About' page or search the site for ‘advisory board’.  Verify at other websites whether the board members are experts.

      2.  Does the group have corporate sponsors?  Who are they and how are their products related to the organization?  Could the sponsors influence what is posted on the website?  Check out the sponsors’ websites to find out.

      3.  Does the information posted on the site include references or information about the sources?  Search the sources to make sure they exist.
