Encyclopedias are a great place to start, because they give high quality summaries of information on a topic. Also try some of the General Journal Article Databases to do a quick, broad search.

The big search box on the libraries homepage will search through articles, books, films, and many other resources, which can also help you get started, or use the searchbox below.
