You might want to have a look at the Resource Discovery Network's Virtual
Training Suite which has a series of online tutorials all about evaluating
Web resources - the humanities ones are listed at
In addition, Humbul's cataloguing guidelines include some pointers to
starting points for evaluating web sites -
http://www.humbul.ac.uk/about/catalogue.html#evaluating and our collection
development policy might be of interest as an example of how this process
can be formalised (http://www.humbul.ac.uk/about/colldev.html)
There's also just under a 100 sites chosen for inclusion in Humbul with
something to do with Shakespeare
Suggestions for others are always welcome.
