Open-source information (OSIF) lab series will cover the basics of conducting online research. This will be a “how-to” on intermediate and advanced search techniques (AST) on various search engines. The series will be structured in a manner where audience participation is encouraged (attendees can shadow the instructor and conduct searches of their own while listening to the SME). Imparting this knowledge and skills to those who work in critical infrastructure and key resources (CIKR) is important, will save the attendee time and will assist in narrowing the search results to the relevancy of the search conducted.
