2.4 Finding quality economics materials on the Web

Creating a course Web page will usually involve making links to external sites. In the next few sections we will look at issues connected to linking, starting with the question of how to find useful content. There are some dedicated projects that seek out the most relevant sites for economics teaching or research and categorise them helpfully. By using these before trying general search engines, you can save time.

For information on how economics lecturers or students may learn to evaluate the worth of materials they find on the Web (including guides to how material should be referenced), you may wish to consult an interactive tutorial called the Internet Economist.
