This paper is the result of a recent exploratory study completed in November 2013, which examines how education graduate students at San Diego State University (SDSU) seek information online. Understanding this group’s online research and information-seeking strategies are critical when one considers that these future graduates will be occupying leadership positions in education and determining educational policy. How they evaluate information resources will impact policy and determine the importance they place on specific informational resources. Discovering the strategies utilized by these graduate students in their information seeking behavior will provide insight into the use of online resources and broader information seeking-strategies.
