Introduction

Although your research projects might require different approaches because they are dissimilar in focus, type, or discipline, there are some general principles of searching that can be applied to most situations. Use the following guide, based on the Big6 information literacy model, as a starting point. (The "Big6™" is copyright © (1987) Michael B. Eisenberg and Robert E. Berkowitz.
