Information Finder
Three steps to analyzing web pages for Authority:
1. Who is the author? And by what authority does s/he speak?
2. Who is the publisher of the information?
3. What is the relationship between the author of the web page and the publisher/server?

Coverage
Author/Creator
Good information is presented by some person or group who is a recognized authority
Three important points to remember when thinking about Accuracy:
1. Can you verify the background and/or factual information the author uses?
2. Does the document rely on other sources that are footnoted and/or in a bibliography?
3. If it's original research, is the methodology or the way the data was gathered clearly explained?

All information displays some bias. It is important to recognize that bias and take it into account when using that source as evidence.
Three steps to analyzing web page Bias:
1. Is the site trying to sell you a product, service, or idea?
2. Is information on the site documented with references?
3. Is the information balanced?

For many types of data, currency, or the timeliness, and the regularity of updates is very important.
Three points to remember:
1. When was the data gathered?
2. What dates are covered by the data?
3. When was the document last updated?

Make sure the information is covered at the level you need.
Three points in thinking about coverage:
1. At what depth do you need the topic to be covered? Is this the right web page for you?
2. Does the author display a breadth of knowledge on the subject?
3. Coverage is really the sum total of all the other criteria--Authority, Accuracy, Bias, and Currency.
