When looking for resources for any piece of research, ask yourself:

  • What are you looking for? 
  • Where are you going to find it? 
  • How are you going to search? 

What types of information are you looking for? Do you need peer-reviewed, academic books and journal articles? Do you need statistics, government reports, or market research? Do you need newspaper articles, images, or other media? Once you know this, you can determine where best to look to find it.
