Complex questions and simple answers

Steven Bell, Associate University Librarian at Temple University, has written a thought provoking post about the nature of academic research and the strategies students use to answer complex questions. It is worth reiterating that not all answers are simple, and that the complexity of a question has much to do with the context from which it originates. Context has much to do with how we envision a problem or challenge, as well as determining what the best sources are for answering the question. This is certainly true in academics! Take a moment to read the post and consider how the complexity and context of your research questions will impact the resources you use.
