That is a complicated question:  Check out our Evaluating Websites Research Guide.  As a general rule, I never trust a website that does not clearly state who the author(s) are.  Remember that organizations, universities and businesses are often the authors of reliable websites.  If, for example, I want medical information, I go to the Mayo Clinic or the CDC because they have a well earned reputation for medical expertise. If you have a question about a specific source, I would be happy to give you my opinion on it. Contact me, Leecy Barnett at 561-237-7059, email: Lbarnett@lynn.edu
