Abstract
There are in creased opportunities for disinformation and misinformation to occur on the Internet and for students, faculty, and others to unknowingly reference them. The extent of inaccurary over the Internet was investigated in 1994 by means of a questionnaire involving 16 participants which covered: individuals' views on the accuracy of information available through the Internet; their reactions to the creation of disinformation and misinformation; their awareness of instances of disinformation and misinformation on the Internet; and their views on the official or authentic version or dource. Findings indictae a need to develop digital signatures and other authenticating techniques
