While we can recommend search strategies and resources, you
should let the information you have as well as the
information you discover, guide you through the research
process. Don't be afraid to explore or to look beyond the
boundaries of your original plan.
You should also consider information beyond that
which exists online. These walk-through examples
cannot capture the value of
a telephone conversation or the essence of a lead that
starts with a hunch and ends with solid information
appearing only in a paper file. (Actual walk-through
scenarios have been removed because the technology used to
capture them no longer is available.)

process and information found at the time of the searching.
