Summary

  • How do I find relevant information for my thesis, dissertation or report?
  • How do I evaluate the relevance and quality of the information I find?
  • How do I find the most up to date information in my subject area?
Anyone setting out to research a topic, whether at undergraduate or postgraduate level, needs to find information to inform their work and support their arguments. This book enables researchers to become expert in finding, accessing and evaluating information for dissertations, projects or reports.

The book works systematically through the information-seeking process, from planning the search to evaluating and managing the end results. It suggests how to do this efficiently and effectively whilst using a range of sources including online bibliographic databases and the internet.

This edition has been thoroughly updated to reflect the use of new technologies in research by offering the most contemporary information on:

  • Online research
  • Critical evaluation of resources
  • Intellectual property rights
  • Research communities
  • The changing landscape of research information
  • Subject-specific resources
Written by an academic librarian, this book provides key reading, not only for academic researchers, but for anyone working for commercial, public or government bodies who has to contribute to research projects.
