How to find information quickly and efficiently

Here are a few suggestions:

a.  Define specific objectives:  what exactly are you looking for?  are you interested in the subject in general or in a specific aspect?  (e.g. are you interested in the studies of the chemistry of resins, or specifically epoxy resins?  Perhaps you are looking for something more specific - epoxy resins containing polyimides?).

b.  Decide which time period should be covered by your search: the current year?, the last five years? and how soon you need this information.

c.  Which sources are going to be most relevant? should you start your search using a general source such as Scifinder Scholar, or a more selective one such as Beilstein? You may need to start with a highly specialized source such as a guide to NMR specta of polymers.
