You know when you need information. There are many situations when you will need to find resources to provide you with the information you need:
♣ When you have a personal interest in a topic
♣ When you need the answer to a question, or need information in order to make a decision
♣ When you have been assigned by an instructor to find information on a topic for:
* An assignment
* A paper or essay
* A speech or presentation
Stop and consider -- what do you already know about the topic on which you need information? You might know a little, or a lot. Or -- you might think you know a lot about the topic, but your information is actually inaccurate and/or inadequate.
How do you go about solving the problem of finding information on your topic, no matter how much you know or do not know about it currently?
♣ Decide what questions you want answered or what you want to learn about your topic
♣ Think about your topic. Are there any aspects of it that most interest you?
