Many evaluators find themselves working on research intensive projects under short deadlines and tight budgets. The good news is more than ever it is possible to do a credible research project using open-access and/or low-cost tools than ever before. This session will cover 10 high quality resources for evaluators. Participants will learn about 10 high quality research resources that are either open-access or low cost including search engines, databases and research websites. In the course of demonstrating some of these resources, participants will also learn/review some helpful tips for more effective searching. They will also find out how these resources can be incorporated into the research process to benefit projects that they are currently working on.
