Module 4: Evaluating the web

leave a comment »

Okay, well. The first thing I’ll point out is that the original task on searching said to “use search terms of my choosing”. So, the fact that I chose Meerkats leaves me completely unable to fill this task’s requirement of “being relevant to this unit”. Oh well. I’ve handed up the assignment it may have been relevant to anyway, so it’s all a moot point.

I’ve chosen to evaluate this particular site:
http://www.digimorph.org/specimens/Suricata_suricatta/

This article was written by an expert from Stony Brook University, and then catalogued in this archive by the NSF Digital Library at UT Austin. The article is well referenced and professionally written, so I have ascertained that it is a reliable and credible source.

The article briefly summarises meerkat information such as characteristics, habitat and habits. It is designed to be a brief reference for research purposes and university use.

I think that generally, the information I saved in to Del.icio.us would be sufficient for referring later. I can, however, forsee times when a more lengthy summary would be appropriate.
