The second is to be able to evaluate the results of the search, to separate nuggets from sparkling junks. There are several reasons why incredible amount of junk can be found on the Internet. Comparison of printed information with information on the net explains the necessity of fitting existing criteria to the new format. Scope, content, graphic and multimedia design, workability are the main headings including several subheadings (e.g. accuracy, authority, currency, connectivity).
