Reviewing the World Wide Web--Theory versus Reality.
Sweetland, James H.
Library Trends, v48 n4 p748-68 Spr 2000
Three attempts at consensus lists of evaluation criteria for the Web are compared with reviews in "Choice" magazine. There is little agreement on the most important/appropriate criteria for a Web site's value, and few of the criteria appear in the sample reviews, suggesting a continued lack of consensus. The extreme rapidity of change in the Web is suggested as a primary reason for this. (Contains 29 references.) (Author/AEF)
