Scanning for specific information

Scanning a bibliography

Good reading skills are essential for effective study. One skill needed is that of being able to locate specific information quickly from a text source. This is referred to as scanning. Scanning is, in other words, a fast kind of reading with the clear aim of finding certain specific information. The kinds of text that you might need to scan for your research project will vary. They include books and journal articles but could also be items such as reading lists or bibliographies, web-based items, e-books, indexes, experimental results, to name just a few.



Practise scanning this bibliography for Open Justice and the Web (a research area in Web Science) to find the specific information needed to answer the questions. Select the correct information from the dropdown lists and then open and read the feedback.
