There are many Web resources relating to History, but as with all information found on the Internet, the quality varies widely. For help in evaluating Web information and using search tools, see Finding Quality Web Information.
Sites created by research agencies, government departments, and professional organizations, such as the American Historical Association and the Canadian Historical Association can be regarded as authoritative.
The following guides (or metapages) serve as starting points for locating History information on the Web. For a selection of more specialized websites, see other sections of this History Research Guide, organized under the categories of Background Information, People, and Organizations.
