Finding Resources

LESSON SUMMARY

Sometimes you may find yourself facing a complicated decision for which you do not have all the facts to resolve. Other times, especially at work or school, you may be asked to justify your decisions. This lesson is about finding the information you need to make decisions and create solutions.

There are many problems and decisions that require little more from us than sorting through familiar details. For instance, you do not need to gather much information to decide about whether to ask for a raise or when to study for an exam. You already know the facts; you must simply use them wisely to come to a decision.

But what if you do not know what to base a decision on? What if there are factors that need to be considered that you are not familiar with? Thinking critically means being armed with accurate information, because the quality of your solutions and decisions is only as good as the information you use to make them. This lesson considers three types of resources: the Internet, the library, and human resources. The next section explores each, explaining when to use them, the best ways to get the most out of them, and their possible shortcomings.
