Tips and strategies to use when looking at how useful individual websites are for research purposes at UWCSEA.

Who is the website for?

Who is the website for? Who is the target audience?

For instance, in a library you know there are books for very young children, middle school, older students and/or adults. On the Internet, it isn’t always clear who comprises the target audience for a website.

When looking at a website, ask yourself:

  • Is this website meant for children?
  • Is it for older students in upper school or even university?
