Web tools[edit]

Archiving tools[edit]

  • Archive.today(link):[note 1] Like the Internet Archive, but newer (so less expansive) and more beloved of fighters in the modern culture wars; may be less useful for finding backup related to creationism, conspiracy theories, alternative medicine, etc. Its archive links are especially short, which has the advantage of taking up less bytes. However, there is an option to generate a long-form link by pressing the "share" button at the top of the page. The advantage of that is that it retains the original link in the URL, which may be useful for recovering the page through alternative means if archive.today ever folded on us in the future.
  • CachedView(link): For finding a Google Cache snapshot of a webpage. The cache is prone to disappear, so it may be wise to save the result in another archive such as the Wayback Machine.
  • GhostArchive(link): Another option for web archiving.
  • Internet Archive's Wayback Machine(link): Over 450 billion saved web pages. Useful for looking up old copies of currently-broken web pages, or for maintaining a stable version of a changing page.
  • Megalodon(link): A Japanese archiving service that could work well as a fallback option. Hopefully you don't need instructions on how to Google Translate it... assuming its interface is not intuitive enough already.
  • SingleFile(link): A browser extension that will let you save a faithful copy of a webpage to your own computer. This isn't so helpful for a "trustworthy" citation, but it could come in handy.[1]


  • Encyclopædia Britannica(link): For the Gen Z readers out there, this can be described as "if Wikipedia was British and had more formal editorial oversight".
  • Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy(link): Online academic encyclopedia of philosophy. Hosted by the University of Tennessee at Martin (UTM).
  • Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy(link): The other online academic encyclopedia of philosophy, and more frequently cited than UTM's. Very useful.
  • Wikipedia(link): The most well-known wiki on the web, serves as a starter-point for more in-depth research.


  • Chronicling America(link): US government (Library of Congress) resource that's free to browse. It consists of old newspaper scans, and can be searched for keywords. It's nowhere near as expansive as paid resources such as ProQuest, Newspapers.com, and NewspaperArchive, however, it can still be useful as a historical resource.
  • Google News Archive(link): Another free source of old newspapers. Google stopped scanning newspapers a long time ago, but the fruits are still here.
  • Google Scholar button (Chrome, Firefox): Searches for highlighted text in Google Scholar. Useful for checking citations.
  • Internet Archive's digital library(link): The Internet Archive's digitization of millions of free books, newspapers, journal articles, movies, software, music. Due to legal problems some of its offerings might be less available than before, particularly some of its music and books. Content that's old enough to have fallen into the public domain in the US will have no issue.
  • JSTOR(link): A lot of academic journals are hosted here, and with a free account you can access one hundred articles from them per month.
  • Project Gutenberg(link): Huge archive of public-domain texts, currently having over 50,000 ebooks in its collection. Also see Standard Ebooks.
  • The Free Library(link): Can be useful for finding copies of news articles from periodicals that have folded within the last few decades, especially periodicals of little note such as certain local newspapers.

Other tools[edit]

  • China Firewall Test(link): See if your favorite website is banned by the Chinese Communist Party!
  • FotoForensics(link): This is intended to assist in figuring out whether an image has been digitally manipulated.[2] As the site's backpages explain, it requires some prior understanding to digest what you're looking at. There is no "one button solution", unfortunately, to figuring whether an image is "real" or not, as the site's administrator (among others) says.[3][4]
  • Le décodex(link): A French webpage, owned by Le Monde, that provides a catalogue for newspages on the internet and details how trustworthy the news on those pages is.
  • International Fact-Checking Network(link): The Poynter Institute's network of about 100 independent and verified fact-checking sites. The given link lists all current and expired signatories.
  • InVID Verification Plugin(link): A browser tool to verify where video footage originated from. This is considered a useful tool by AFP's fact-checkers, Miami Dade College, and Amnesty International.[5][6][7]
  • rbutr(link): Rbutr shows you if there are rebuttals (rather, if someone has linked a rebuttal) to the page you're viewing. Very useful, especially for widely-cited and older material.
  • Search by Image (Chrome, Firefox): quicker alternative than hopping to whatever reverse image search website(s) you use. Can search with multiple search engines at once.
  • Twitter Video Downloader(link): Tweets are prone to deletion without notice, and the service itself has shown signs of instability in recent years. So why not save or mirror the many videos found there yourself?
