F.I.N.D.S. is a model you can use when conducting research or responding to an information need. Its name is an acronym for the five steps of the process: Focus, Investigate, Note, Develop, and Score.

Whenever you are faced with an information need, you can use the F.I.N.D.S. model to keep yourself on track. Use of the model can minimize the time you spend deciding what information you need, looking for relevant information, using the information you find, coming to your conclusion or making your decision, and evaluating your product and process.

Click on the tabs across the top of this page to discover the actions that are involved in each step of the model. Links to resources that will help you in the research process are included within each step.

You may also watch the video below for an overview of the F.I.N.D.S. model.

I hope that you discover the advantages of the F.I.N.D.S. model and use it whenever you have an information problem.
