Stop!  Before you dive into your project, ask the following questions:

  1. What am I looking for?  Facts & figures?  Articles? Guidelines? 
  2. Who else is interested in this information?   Communities?  Associations?  Social workers?
  3. Where are they likely to post their info?  Public website?  Journal article?  Conference paper?

Answering the above will save you time in the long run & cut your stress!

  1. Facts & figures (i.e. statistics) are often collected by governments & associations and posted on their websites
  2. Articles are usually written by professionals and published in journals or presented at conferences
  3. Guidelines are usually written up for an institution & many are posted at the National Guideline Clearinghouse
