The Information Timeline

Knowing how and when different types of information are produced can be important for your research process.  Some information is produced immediately after an event, while other types are produced later.  The time can affect the content and quality of the information.  For more information,  see this page on the information cycle.

Research TIp

When searching in Google or another search engine, using a country's specific government domain extension can help you restrict your results to sources from a particular country's government websites.

For example: "climate change" site:.gov would show you results from U.S. government websites that mentioned "climate change".
