One of the most perplexing aspects of research today is what to do when there's too much information on a topic. The key, says Leslie Stebbins, is to know how to find the most promising information, evaluate it, and use it effectively. Individual chapters provide a step-by-step introduction to research and critical evaluation and specific types of information resources, as well as guidance on such skills as note-taking and referencing. Students and librarians alike will benefit from these suggestions, strategies and straightforward examples for developing good filtering instincts and management of search results.
