Once you've read and taken notes in reference sources for an overview, you should focus on finding secondary sources for your research. Search for print books, e-books, and video in the library catalog. Journal articles may be found in the databases (listed below). Websites will also contain secondary source material. The resources below have been found by a librarian, but you may conduct your own searches in the catalog for books/e-books, databases for scholarly journal articles and magazine articles, and on the free web for websites. Please don't hesitate to ask a librarian if you need help.
