And so we come full circle: This is a textbook about how to write a textbook. In writing it, I was writing the book I wished I read when I wrote my dissertation, 12 years too late.

For now, I must leave you with this incomplete version. We have touched on many, many themes, too many to do any but the most important real justice. As the Einstein quote beginning this chapter suggests, in FOA it is not really the documents retrieved that mattes, but the journey to them. The reader is encouraged to follow the bibliographic citations, and the more active pointers collected on the FOA WWW page, in order to really FOA(Finding Out About).
