During Module 2, your project assignment is to develop a strategy for searching out key sources within the literature that will meet the needs you identified in your Module 1 SLP. By “strategy,” we mean a list of steps that you will take to identify the sources that you need. These sources may include professional writing such as journal articles or conference presentations, technical reports or other sources of technical data, analyses and opinions presented by knowledgeable experts regarding your problem, or any other kinds of information that you identified a need for in module 1. Hopefully, you will be able to identify a way of gathering information about everything that you identified as a need earlier.

Specifically, you are to prepare a short paper describing your information sources and the steps you will undertake to obtain what information you need. This might involve library research, consultation with other experts, online searching using a variety of tools, or other mechanisms. For each kind of information you seek, you should present here a set of steps by which you can obtain it and incorporated into your project.

This strategy description should be accompanied by two or three specific sources that you have been able to obtain thus far. These might be copies of journal articles or other sources. The point is to show that your strategy has at least begun to pay off in terms of providing the kind of source material you will need to develop your literature review overall.
