Library Resource Guides: Websites

Searching the web

The web is an excellent source of health information and the latest news provided by organisations (.org), government departments (.gov), network operators (.net) and educational institutes (.edu).

However, when you search the web you can also find a lot of irrelevant and unsubstantiated information. Be ready to evaluate the quality and relevance of information from commercial entities (.com) as these have a business interest.
