Bible, Theology & Ministry: Recommended Websites

Evaluating Websites

Search engines like Google or Bing find websites of all levels of quality and value.

These Web sites were chosen by your librarian based on the following standards. Keep these things in mind when deciding if a website is reliable and appropriate for your research.

  • author has credibility
  • objective and unbiased
  • accurate
  • recently updated
  • educational purpose

Always check with your instructor to find out if you can use free (non-Library) websites for your assignments.

Remember, if looking for journal articles, library databases are the most efficient tool for searching.

Research Process

  1. Choose your topic & isolate potential keywords. Use synonyms.
  2. Use your textbook & reference sources.
  3. Determine what types of sources are needed & begin searching.
  4. Evaluate the quality, quantity & relevance of your sources.
  5. Be sure to cite any ideas you have used that are not your own.
  6. Assess your results, & refine as needed.
