Information Overload

“Information threatens to overwhelm the worker”

Thanks to the internet information can be easily obtained after a few keystrokes and mouse clicks.  However, as an investigator, researcher or analyst, with limited time and a demanding case load, how can you be of source credibility, search accuracy AND efficiency?   Go back to basics.  Here are three suggestions:

1. Go to an educational event and ask questions.  If your game for training- I’d recommend  the Expert Searcher Symposium or the Open Source Research for Enhanced Due Diligence course.

2.  Incorporate Zotero to help with online research

3. Use THREE search engines at once!  Search3 allows you to search Google, Twitter, Yahoo, Ebay and/or Bing simultaneously.
