Finding Ayurveda Resources on the Web

Criteria for Evaluating Websites

As we say in the library: "the good thing is anyone can create a website; the bad thing is anyone can create a website." The quality of resources on the Web varies greatly and it's up to you to assess the sources and information you find. Here are some criteria to consider:

  • Who runs the website?
  • Who funds the site?
  • What is the site's purpose?
  • Where does the information come from?
  • How is the information selected?
  • How current is the information?
