EASO publishes summary of tools and tips for online COI research

As part of the EASO Practical Guide series, the European Asylum Support Office published a guide informing about the main tools and tips for online research of country of origin information.

“This document aims to provide a high-level overview of some of the main tools and tips for online research that may be of use to COI researchers. The “Tools and Tips for online COI Research” are based mainly on information provided by the various speakers invited to the Online COI Research Conference organised by EASO’s Centre for Information, Documentation and Analysis (CIDA) on 26 and 27 March 2014, in Malta. It is supplemented with additional information where appropriate. Divided into three main chapters (Searching and Information retrieval; Organising Information; Privacy while searching the Web and Data Protection issues), the document covers a wide variety of tools, such as Social bookmarking, Anonymous search engines, Archived content and RSS Feeds.” (EASO message, 14 August 2014)
