I.IntroductionII.III.This report is about the importance of evaluating our resources and examples ofthe process of evaluation of two websites on Computer hardware and how computers work. Weas a future computer scientist, have to know about how computers work, what their componentsare and how they correlate with each other. In order to be able to explain and understand moreabout the subject, we must read and search information in books, researches and morespecifically articles on the Internet. In this report, we are going to be using two websites that areon the World Wide Web as an example of how can we search for information and evaluate it.IV.We have to be able to evaluate our information sources, because nowadays thereis too much information on the web and we don’t know if it is accurate. We can’t use theinformation for our paper or project, because we don’t know if the information is true andreliable. We have to be able to evaluate our resources, because the information “varies widely intheir authority, accuracy, objectivity, currency, and coverage .” This are the “five traditionalcriteria, used to determine the quality of print information in libraries, and can also be applied tothe evaluation of web resources .” If we want to be able to rely on the information, we have tobe able to critically evaluate the information. That is why evaluation of our resources is veryimportant process in our research.
