The steps below comprise a commonsense approach that can help you find relevant, quality information--for writing a paper, preparing a presentation, working on a lab experiment, answering a question, etc.

This Information Strategy consists of the following four parts:

  1. Evaluate ... questions to ask; how appropriate, valid, and useful is the information that you have?
  2. Research Question/Define a topic ... what is the question you are trying to answer? Shape that question by gathering authoritative and understandable background information.
  3. Identify ... find and collect evidence to support your answer.
  4. Locate ... get that evidence.

Questions? Please let me know.
