Guide to print and online sources, both legal and interdisciplinary for access to justice research. Prepared for the Access to Justice Seminar

Evaluating Websites

Note official websites of agencies, universities, courts, states, and other legislative, executive, and judicial organizations. Evaluate online resources by identifying the source of information:

  • Who is the author?
  • What are the author's credentials?
  • Level of objectivity--an advocacy or interest group website can be a valuable source of information, unless the organization hides its mission.
  • When was the website last updated and how often is it updated?
  • Verify the information found
  • Note that some websites (i.e. Wikipedia) can be altered by anyone
