With its diverse scope and breadth of information attractively presented, Internet has become the most updated and authoritative public information source. The fact that anyone could publish just about anything on this huge network without any supervision or revision serves as a small reminder on how to utilize and find credible information on the Net.

It would then introduce s a tool for teaching website evaluation to children and teenagers. It would also further familiarize the librarians with the selection criteria for the websites most appropriate for this age group.
