How do you track down the information you need without being distracted by false trails? Journalists, writers, in fact anyone who hunts information, need to develop superb research skills to avoid chasing red herrings or running into blank walls.

When you release the hounds, you are already halfway to your quarry. By identifying what information resources exist, who is responsible for them and how to match a resource to a particular need, Christine Fogg sets the researcher on the right track.

Is there any information worth having that's not on the Internet? (Answer: YES!) Where exactly will you find Environmental Impact Statements or Green Papers? Is there a library or collection that specialises in the area you are researching? Where will you find out who owned your house in 1923?

Never losing sight of the importance of approaching information with a critical eye, Release the Hounds is an essential tool for all researchers, journalists and writers.

‘Journalism needs savvy people. Hanging around in bars is OK, but there is more to the game these days. Or there should be. And this is a book that could help lift your performance.' From the foreword by Bruce Grundy, University of Queensland
