Searching Information

Stages of the information searching

The information search process...

...has many different stages.

Searching information may feel difficult, but it helps to divide the process into smaller sections. You will save time and get the best end result possible by planning your information searching beforehand.

The process starts with your information need and subject and continues with choosing essential concepts and search terms.

Then you will choose search techniques and suitable information sources and broaden or narrow the search if necessary.

Finally, you will evaluate the search results: how useful they are to you and how you can access them.

If the results do not match your need, you might have to return to previous stages of the process and make changes.
