83 Information SkillsInternet search engines, these databases contain carefully catalogued information, and you can exploit this to improve your searching skills.Plan Your SearchBefore you even go near the Internet, spend some time thinking about exactly what information you need.Start by jotting down words or phrases as they come to mind, as this may help to define exactly what information you need. As your ideas become clearer, try to write a single sentence or search statement which exactly describes what you need to know.A good technique to help you do this it is to underline the keyword or ideas in the sentence

For example, there are several alternative terms for effective (e.g. competent, productive, proficient, capable) and even the internet can be referred to in several different ways (e.g. internet, net, www, world-wide-web). To make sure that you cover all the possibilities you need to take into account:SynonymsPluralsPhrasesAbbreviationsAcronymsVariations in spelling (e.g. organisation and organization between UK and US English)
