Is the organization the author represent an educational institution (sites ending with .edu) or government agency (sites ending with .gov).
- Accuracy: Can the data be verified from other sources? Does the author have an obvious bias?
- Audience: Is the site intended for scholars or professionals, for lay people, or for students?
- Currency: Does the Web site include the date it was created and/or updated? Are the links current?
- Coverage: Does the site state its intended scope? Is it designed to cover an entire subject, or to give detailed information on one aspect
