Research (from Wiktionary) – Diligent inquiry or examination to seek or revise facts, principles, theories, applications.
I do corporate tax work for a living. When I started in my field, the tax reporters were all paper. I specialize in state taxation, so there were over 50 reporters (at least one for each state; more for several of the states). If I had to research a topic in multiple states, my desk would be covered with books.
Now, the tax reporters are on-line. If I research multiple states, I open up multiple windows on my computer. It’s a good thing too – my current cubicle is so small that I couldn’t hold a lot of books on my table top!
