Library resources on quality of websites

In a reading group meeting today I mentioned that we had just finished doing case studies of how one judges information quality on the web, and was pointed to a Berkeley library resource on evaluating web pages. It describes many of the quality indicators that were mentioned in class two weeks ago: the form of the URL, background information, documentation, external links, and outside opinions on the site. I imagine that our prototypical Berkeley sophomore wouldn't access a page like this before starting their Google search, but it's something that some are trying to address.
