"Information Now"

Some Exercises Inspired by Information Now

Steps to finding and using the right information.

1.  Take a closer look at your research question.  Is it too broad or too specific? 

2.  How do you find background information for your topic?  How do you get started? Do you use Wikipedia?  CQ Researcher?  Something else?

3.  Explain why you use a specific resource for background information and share your thoughts on why that resource is the most useful for you.  Do you use the information as a starting point or do you use it as the core of your research?  Which way do you think is the correct way?
