Find Information

Does this sound familiar: You peck away on the internet for hours, jumping from one topic to another, following leads that end up as dead ends, and ultimately changing your topic time after time because you can't find anything.

Save yourself time and frustration! These skills all have to do with selecting the right tools and being efficient and effective at using them.
