· Your evaluation of the source (include the 7 criteria; one paragraph) (Please ” bold” each evaluation criterion as you discuss in the paragraph – see sample below. Example: “The article is of high quality because a bibliography of sources is provided at the end.” This will help you make the connection between each evaluation criterion and your explanation/rationale.)
· Accuracy (Provide the rationale in your evaluation: is the information accurate? are there any mistakes or contradictions in the content?)
· Currency (Provide the rationale in your evaluation: is the information timely and current especially important for technology topics? does the site or article include the date it was published and/or a date as to when it was updated/revised?)
· Authority/credibility (Provide the rationale in your evaluation: what are the author’s/editor’s credentials or background and/or the organization’s/site’s purpose? Is the author or organization/site a recognized, reputable, and reliable authority in the field? Is the URL extension .edu (education), .org (non-profit), .gov (government), or is it a .com or .net (business)?
· Quality (Provide the rationale in your evaluation: are the sources of the article documented in footnotes or in-text citations and/or include a bibliography at the end? is the information based on evidence or research? Are there links to more information and do the links work?)
· Objectivity (Provide the rationale in your evaluation: does the author or organization’s site or article give a balanced viewpoint and/or with multiple perspectives or is it biased based on personal opinion)?
· Coverage (Provide the rationale in your evaluation: is the information on the site or article comprehensive enough (or contain key information) for the information need? Does the site or article cover too much or too little generally? Is important information missing?)

· Note: If you do not recommend the information source for the IT client’s information need as a result of your evaluation, then find a different information source. All information sources in your Annotated Bibliography are those that you recommend and have “passed” your evaluation.
