Searching is a process of discovery that may expand your knowledge and broaden your views. It is one of the most creative aspects of research. Once you master some techniques, you might find you enjoy it.

Sometimes you may find more information than you want. Knowing how to focus your search can reduce what you find to a more manageable amount. On the other hand, your search might uncover no information at all. If so, you have to be persistent - possibly trying different approaches to find what you need.

Selecting the best source to search, choosing the most appropriate words, and combining them successfully are skills you will develop in this module of Tiger TAIL. It should take you approximately 30 minutes to complete.
