    About websites

    Not all the of the information you find on the internet is accurate, up-to-date and reliable.

    It is important to evaluate your information before you decide to use it in your assignment.

    Ask yourself:

    - how relevant is it?

    - is it current and up-to-date?

    - is it published by a reputable author or organisation?

    Watch our video on Evaluating Information to find out more.

    Always check the URL of a website to determine what type of site it is:

    .edu or .ac : an academic institution, e.g. curtin.edu.au

    .gov : a government body, e.g. abs.gov.au

    .org : a non-profit organisation, e.g. engineersaustralia.org.au

    .com or .co : a commercial body or company, e.g. cmewa.com.au

    .net : an internet service provider, e.g. miningjobswa.net.au
