Information universe

When I facing some problem, needed to find some information
If the problem is related with academic the star plus is my first choice.
  • all the information is academic view, so it is helpful with my personal work
  • the most important thing is that the article are all free to view
  • I get used to this method
  • have textbook, paper, many different sources 
  • ask tutor
  • qustionair
  • policy document, report
If the problem is related with general problem, maybe interesting to something.
  • the first thing came up in my mind is GOOGLE. Normally, I think about the keywords
  • some mobile apps on my phone e.g. national rail, Isheffield
  • ask someone focus on that area
  • face to face
I think this would be all the method I needed.

Information Universe--Wanqiao Li

The task of this week is thinking and identifying the different types of sources of information found. When I prepared for my essays and projects, I needed to work on different types of information sources.

I would like to take a example of one of my academic projects concerned the usage of RFID technology in METRO GROUP. I gathered a great deal of information as follows:

1. INFORMATION TYPE: websites
e.g. Q: How RFID technology works?
        A: I watched a video and browsed official website of METRO GROUP.

2. INFORMATION TYPE: reports
e.g. Q: What is advantages of using RFID technology?
        A: I did a research on a report of changes of working time and profits. I analyzed and concluded by myself.

3. INFORMATION TYPE: ask experts
e.g. Q: What is disadvantages of RFID technology?
        A: I asked a professor who focused on RFID technology.

4. INFORMATION TYPE: questionnaire
e.g. Q: The general view of using RFID technology.
        A: I asked many customers some questions that I wrote on papers.

These are some information types I used in one of my projects. But whatever the way we gathered information is to powerfully support our viewpoints.
