Guide to Sources of Information
, April 1997 [750 Pages, 580 kb] –
This 1997 Investigators’ Guide to Sources of Information is published as a
service to the investigative community by GAO’s Office of Special
Investigations. It is intended to be a useful investigative tool for
identifying sources of information about people, property, business, and finance.
This year’s guide is organized so that all of the information about a single
source is located in a single definitive category. An index has been addedto
locate sources of information about a topic that may be discussed inone or more
places in the guide. Finally, to make the guide useful in an increasingly
electronic environment, we have added Internet addresses wherever possible and
a chapter on how to use the Internet to gather information valuable to the
investigative process.
