The Internet has many useful resources. However, not all sites are accurate or useful. Generally, sites that are .edu or .gov have accurate educational information and are protected. If the site is an .org, it is representing a group of businesses or industries. A .com site is a commercial site and will focus on both the product and sales. Some .com sites have educational information, but reading the privacy policy is important. Avoid giving personal information over the Internet. If a link provided in this cannot be found, search the key words for the general site and topic. Please contact the Nebraska 4-H Curriculum Office if you find a dead link or a link to a page that has questionable content.
