Topic Research: Gathering Materials and Evidence > Gathering Evidence: An Overview Why Gather Information? • Don't simply rely on your own expertise to carry you through the speech. Seek out information to support your arguments and gain credibility with the audience. • Instead of relying on generalizations or common sense, find current information to update your interpretation of the topic. • Gather specialized information that will make your speech more relevant to your particular audience.

Topic Research: Gathering Materials and Evidence > Gathering Evidence: An Overview Sources of Information • Research librarians can help you get started on the research process. They can also help you refine your research and save time. • If you're looking for the most current information about your topic, look for articles. Make sure their sources are trustworthy, though! • When you are evaluating the credibility of a source, use the ADAM protocol: Age (how old is the information), Depth (how detailed is the information), Author (how qualified and reputable is the author), and Money (how monetary benefits may have produced biased information).

Topic Research: Gathering Materials and Evidence > Gathering Evidence: An Overview Research Tips: Start Early, Use a Bibliography, and Evaluate Material Critically • Even seasoned public speakers start preparing early—follow their lead! • Bibliographies, which compile many different sources that address a particular topic, are great research tools. • Make sure you understand the context of your research, especially if you are looking at unfamiliar sources.

Topic Research: Gathering Materials and Evidence > Library Research Finding Materials in a Library • All physical materials such as books and DVDs are labeled according to a system, such as the Dewey Decimal Classification. The label corresponds to the material's location in the library. • Digital materials, such as databases, are easily searchable from the library's computers. The homepage will help you determine which source to use and will then direct you to the source. • Librarians remain one of the best ways to find materials in a library. Their knowledge and expertise can make research must easier. Dewey Decimal Categorization View on Boundless.com Free to share, print, make copies and changes.

Topic Research: Gathering Materials and Evidence > Library Research Types of Material in a Library • Librarians can help you determine the best resources to use and introduce you to any technology or software you might need to access them. • Libraries have physical resources such as books, maps, manuscripts, and periodicals. • Libraries can provide free access to digital resources such as e-books and databases that are often inaccessible without a subscription.

Topic Research: Gathering Materials and Evidence > Internet Research Finding Materials on the Internet • If you find yourself with an unfamiliar topic, you can orient yourself by conducting a general, preliminary overview search using Internet search engines. • Don't limit yourself to just one search engine; Google, Bing, Yahoo!, Ask, and AOL Search comprise the top five search engines in the U.S. and each do certain types of searches better than others. • Use Boolean operators like AND, OR, and NOT to refine and specify your search queries for accurate research results.

Topic Research: Gathering Materials and Evidence > Internet Research Types of Material on the Internet • The Internet is a constantly expanding virtual library with over a million terabytes of data and information to be found and millions more gigabytes added daily. • The Internet can provide you with a variety of sources including: scholarly databases and journals, online encyclopedias, books, and videos. • Even social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook can provide you with unique and comprehensive sources of citizen journalism.

Topic Research: Gathering Materials and Evidence > Internet Research Evaluating Internet Material • Failure to accurately evaluate your Internet sources leaves you and your speech subject to intense scrutiny and questions of credibility. • Consider the "age, depth, author and money" of every source you use from the Internet. The ADAM approach can help you determine whether or not you should proceed with using a particular source. • Looking at a website's top-level domain can give you clues about its reliability. Generally speaking, it's safe to trust information from sites with domain names that end in .edu, .gov and .ngo and sometimes .org. • When using and evaluating social media sources, researchers should be aware of sites that have a poor reputation for checking facts or moderating content.

Topic Research: Gathering Materials and Evidence > Interviewing Interview Preparation • Thoroughly doing your homework on a potential interview subject not only helps you to build rapport with him or her during your interview, it helps to confirm whether or not your interviewee makes an appropriate primary source. • Whether you write out talking points or specific questions, make sure to pay attention during your interview to look for opportunities to ask follow-up questions. • Both interviewers and interviewees should keep in mind factors such as timing and pacing to keep the discussion focused.

Topic Research: Gathering Materials and Evidence > Interviewing Interview Conduct • Set the schedule yourself and factor in breaks if you are interviewing more than one person in a row. • Establish rapport with your subject by being friendly, polite, and respectful. • Leave your ego at the door and let the person you are interviewing teach you. • Don't be a slave to your questions and the order in which you ask them. If new questions come up during the interview, ask them. Conducting Your Interview View on Boundless.com Free to share, print, make copies and changes.

Topic Research: Gathering Materials and Evidence > Interviewing Interview Followup • If you have interviewed synchronously one or two experts in person, telephone, or video conference, then you should listen to the recording of the interview and mark points of interest. • If you have conducted an online synchronous interview using chat, make sure that you have actually activated the archive feature so that you have a recorded transcript of the chat and are able to review each of the questions and responses at a later time. • If you conducted an online asynchronous interview, you may have a large sample of geographically dispersed respondents. You will need to summarize the content or tabulate the ratings if you used rating scales for the interview questions.
