Research Basics

225px-Circle-information.svgWe need information all day, every day.  Maybe you’ve wanted to go to a restaurant with friends,  First, you ask the question, “where is a good restaurant around here?”  You may have turned to Siri or Yelp or Google to discover places with good rankings.  Once you’d done a few searches, you evaluated your results.  Maybe you also refined your question, “Where’s a good Thai restaurant within walking distance?”
Research is a process, not a product.

As in the scenario above, good research involves several steps.  You may go back and forth between these steps several times, refining as you go.
