INVESTIGATE


Investigate resources to look for an answer


  • What criteria should I use to evaluate and select the information sources?
  • Where are the sources located and what information does each source provide?
  • Where is the information within each source and how do I locate it?
  • What problems am I having in finding information and how do I solve these problems?
  • How can I find what I need and respect the rights of others to equal access to information?
