Library Research Guide


In general, websites are hosted in domains that tell you what type of site it is.

  • .com = commercial
  • .net = network provider
  • .org = organization
  • .edu = education
  • .mil = military
  • .gov = U.S. government 

Commercial sites want to persuade you to buy something, and organizations may want to persuade you to see an issue from a particular viewpoint.

Useful information can be found on all kinds of sites, but you must consider carefully whether the source is useful for your purpose and for your audience.
