As you may have found searching the web is a time-consuming and rather inefficient chore: even when using quality search engines, you may have to sift through dozens of irrelevant “hits” to find the information you want. In no more than 1-page, critically reflect on your search process. Interpret the success and challenges you faced when finding sources for your research study. Was it difficult to find scholarly resources on your topic? What are some hints or tips you would have for your peers in conducting a search for sources via the internet?
