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

Where else can you look?

Where else to go?

Sometimes, no one webpage/site will give you all the information you need.

Good information sources often provide strategies or guidance about where else to go to get helpful or relevant information.

Does the website you’re looking at give links to other websites? Do these links work?

The writers of website text should have undertaken research to help them write the website content. Do they tell you where the information they used came from? Are they demonstrating good academic honesty standards?

Don't forget ... for quality information, use the databases on the College Portal. 

Simply log-in to the College Portal (website) and select the page called Reference Sites from the pull-up menu.
