EGIS (Energy, Geoscience, Infrastructure and Society): Finding other types of information

Which resources to use?

The types of information sources you use to find facts, figures and data, will differ from those that provide an overview/introduction to a topic, which in turn will differ from those sources which provide up-to-date and in-depth focus on topic and the type of information you choose to use will change depending on the question you are trying to answer. Therefore, when literature searching, the three main things to consider are:

  • What type of information am I looking for?
  • Which resources are best suited to find that type of information?
  • Which Keywords / Search terms / Phrases / Combinations should I use?

Using a resource that has been designed to help you find the type information you require will save you time, as your results will be more relevant.
