Searching for academic information is a process that requires time and planning. New information must be compared with the knowledge we already have. In this way, we expand our knowledge and contribute to creating new meaning and understanding.

Before you start searching, think about:

  • What kind of information do you need for answering your research question?
  • How can you find this information?
