Relevancy    Appropriateness    Detail    Currency    Authority    Bias

Most of us don’t like to waste time. In order to be efficient “info-tectives” we need to begin our information search with focus questions and search terms that relate to our information problem.

Using specific keywords and phrases that relate to our research questions helps us focus our search energies and keep us on task.

By keeping our focus questions and search terms at the front of our brains, we are less apt to fall into that time-wasting black hole of irrelevant information.
