Explain the ways that you would use to conduct an information search?
- I would start off with books first. There is a lot of information in books that you sometimes cannot find online. Also I would use different resources of teachers and librarians for information also. They have a lot of ideas and ways for you to find what you are looking for. Using the internet is the easiest way of course. By using a search engine and typing in key words, you find just about anything that you need online. When I do use a search engine, sometimes I like to write down specific information throughout the different passages so that way in case I forget anything I can go back to my notes that jotted down instead of going back through a whole passage. Another good way is to talk with fellow students. A lot of times the information I have may be totally different from what they have so that way we can compare and see the differences that we have in our work.
