Key Tips

Expect to use a wide variety of sources, including a combination of library research tools, websites and primary research (e.g. speaking with contacts directly).

Use a variety of terms when searching for sourcing info. For example, top could also be listed as blouse, shirt, polo, t-shirt, sweater, etc.

Extrapolate pieces of useful data from unexpected sources. For example, search the news for info related to manufacturing in your country, noting key people, companies, places and events for further research.
