CCA 1084 - Communication for Health Sciences: Web Sites

Web Search Tips

Use Google's Advanced Search to:
  • Limit searches to domains (like .edu, .org, .ca, etc.)
  • Search for terms only in a part of a document, like the title
  • Search for exact phrases (eg: "VCC Library")
 
Evaluate websites:
  • Who wrote it?
  • What is the website about?
  • When was it created or updated?
  • Where does it come from - government, business, educational institution?
  • Why was it created - to sell a product, to provide opinions, to educate?

Reliable Online Sources

When using online sources, make sure they come from reputable organizations. You should generally use websites from academic institutions, governmental sources, and formal organizations like associations, medical groups, etc., as your main online resources.
