Defining the task

To get the best results you need to understand exactly what you are being asked to do. The first step is to define the task.

Defining the task involves

  • Understanding the question
  • Using what you know
  • Background Reading
  • Developing keywords
  • Planning the final product


The Information Search Process prepared by the NSW DET is a very good guide to defining your task

The State Library of Victoria also provides an excellent guide to help you effectively define your task.
