Finding the "Right" Information: A Search Strategy. Keys to Community Involvement Series: 12.
Hunter, Carolyn
Whether it is needed for long-range planning or immediate problem-solving, information is inevitably critical to community groups and leaders. This booklet is for individuals and groups who are faced with a need for finding the "right" information for discussion and decision-making. The booklet describes an overall approach to information-seeking and contains guidelines and examples for specific applications. It is organized in five major sections and includes a discussion of the following topics: (1) information-searching as detective work; (2) framing an information search; (3) developing an information search plan and defining the information wanted, choosing a search method, and deciding who will conduct the search; (4) conducting the information search and avoiding information sources, avoiding false leads, and collecting and organizing information; and (5) assessing the results of an information search.
