Investigators’ Guide to Sources of Information [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.
