Each of the Four Points describes an approach to finding information on the Internet while providing links to demonstrate the approach. I hope that each point will help you learn how to focus your questions so that the Internet can help you find answers.
It is the goal of this Plan to demonstrate a general strategy for finding information on the Internet. Further, the Plan provides pointers and links to various Internet locations that will help users find what there is on a given topic. If you are looking for something in particular, this guide can help you focus your question in such a way as to be able to fruitfully approach answering that question using the Internet.
I created this Four-Point Plan in order to help folks answer questions
using the Internet. The idea originated during Internet training sessions
at Indiana University. I have found the Four-Point Plan outlined
here to be a very successful strategy, and hope that you find it useful.
It is not my intention to convey a great amount of technical
information about the Internet, or teach the history of the network
of networks. Nor do I intend this strategy as the only way to use
the Internet in a productive or efficient manner. In my own experience,
browsing has been at least as successful a method as the more
systematic kind of approach that I have outlined here.
In any event, I hope this Plan is helpful. If you have any
suggestions or comments, please use
