In this day and age it is safe to say that most research is done using the web, but have you ever wondered how credible the information you are getting actually is? This is where web literacy comes into play. It is something that allows us to see how reliable a website is based on certain characteristics. For example, if a website has a .edu domain, then that means it is an educational website that is most likely to have reliable information. Proper web citation is also a very important aspect of web literacy. Wikipedia is one of the most common research tools on the web because of how well cited each page is. In order to find reliable information we must keep a close eye on these aspects along with many others that are mentioned in this article. By doing this we can be sure to filter out all of the non-reliable information and learn to research more efficiently.
