What You'll Find Here

These Web Sites are available on the open Web. They have been reviewed by librarians for worthwhile content. This page will be updated with new content as we find it. If a site is having trouble, or you find a site that should be here, contact Mr. Weaver.

Just because it's on the Web doesn't mean it's trustworthy!  Use critical thinking when you're gathering information from the open Web. Learn about evaluating the credibility of a resource to gain insight into how you can determine the value of a website.
