Topic 8 Summary
In this section we have introduced the basic principles of searching, and applied them to different tools, such as databases for finding references to journal articles, and library catalogues. We have also looked at the tools for finding information on the web. Finally, we considered the things we would need to record to keep track of our progress when searching for information.
Thinking back to what we have covered in this section, note down:
- any problems you have met with so far;
- any things that have given you a sense of achievement;
- anything that you will do differently next time.
