Abstract: Basic information gathering is a vital element of the work of research firms when they begin new research. Search sources vary; they include not only site information but also documents on office shelves, and objectives include both accuracy and efficiency in producing results. Inexperienced members of research groups cannot easily define objective terms for doing their searches with the result that they take a long time to identify appropriate information. This paper looks at reference methods for special terms and business-world terms when searching e-government material. It also looks at expressions of vague numerical information often found in government reports and proposes how these can be taken into consideration and efficiently searched.
