Research like a pro

August 31, 2018

There is so much information on the Internet. How do you find what you need and make sure it’s accurate?

 

Be Specific

To come up with the most effective keywords—words that describe what you want to know more about—write down what you’re looking for in the form of a question, and then circle the most important words in that sentence. Those are the keywords to use in your search. And for best results, use words that are specific rather than general.

 

Research

Research on the Internet involves “looking up” information using a search engine. Type one or two keywords, and the search engine will provide a list of websites that contain information related to your topic.

 

Use Trustworthy Sources

When conducting Internet research, be sure the website you use is reliable and the information it provides can be trusted. Sites produced by well-known, established organizations, companies, publications, educational institutions, or the government are your best bets.

 

Don’t Copy

Avoid Internet plagiarism. Take careful notes and cite the websites you use to conduct research.
