Summary "Using the literature to support research whether it be in an educational setting or within industry - involves much more than a simple search: the thought and preparation beforehand is a vital part of the process while the problems of obtaining, recording, reading and citing the literature can be as daunting as the search itself. This practical guide explains, in a straightforward manner, the techniques, procedures and methods of organization that will enable the reader to understand the environment within which they are working and thereby exploit it more effectively."--BOOK JACKET
