Finding Information

Question: How can you find information when you don’t know where to look?

> “Ask those who know where the information is located.”

 > “Use brainstorming—generate categories that might be related to the information you need, and search under these categories.”

> “Use brute force—skim and scan the whole area where the information might be located.” P. 418.

Comment: Ever face that situation? RayS.
