web gray Starting with the Web . . .

Although many people first go to the Web for information, it is not always the best place for what you need.

Information on the Web does not always go through a review process.
Anyone can publish on the Web without passing the content through an editor. Pages might be written by an expert on the topic, a journalist, a disgruntled consumer or even a child.

Some information on the Web is not free.
Many Web pages are free to view, but some commercial sites will charge a fee to access their information.

Information on the Web is not always organized.
Web sites can be organized in many different ways and sometimes information can be hard to find.

Most information on the Web is not permanent.
Some well-maintained sites are updated with very current information, but other sites may become quickly dated or disappear altogether without much if any notice.
