Introduction

Searching for information for design projects and research papers need not be difficult. If you design and follow a plan in your search for information—a search strategy—you will be able to find what you need with greater efficiency. This search strategy is intended as a general guide. You can vary it depending on your specific needs, but consider all of these basic steps.

A good place to begin your research strategy is UC Berkeley Teaching Library's General Guide on Research.
