1. What is the domain name (that is, .com, .org, .gov) and what does that tell you about the quality of information on the website?

3. Who created the specific article or document you plan to use from the website? What are their credentials? Is a resume or biography listed? Is contact information listed?
4. When was the website last updated? Is the information current?
5. What additional sources are referenced on the document? That is, what information did they draw on to create the source? Are these sources reputable? How can you tell?
