6.5.1 Explore different information sources
Where and how are you going to look for your information? Finding information effectively involves being aware of techniques for locating and digging out the relevant information. Find out about how the sources you have identified are organised and indexed, and formulate your questions appropriately.
Set up different search strategies and criteria to explore alternative lines of enquiry. If you need to search for, evaluate and select information from the Internet or other databases, find how to set up queries using search engines, and how to refine your search. Different databases may offer different ways of searching for information and different search interfaces so you may need to spend time learning about the ones you intend to use.
List your priorities for learning about searching techniques, and set some target dates to work towards.
