GAO presented an investigative tool for identifying sources of information about people, property, business, and finance. The guide includes an index to locate sources of information about a topic that may be discussed in one or more places in the guide, and a chapter on how to use the Internet to gather information valuable to the investigative process. In many cases, information in the sources cited may be privileged or confidential and, therefore, unavailable.
