Use the acronym, ASE, for your research strategy!

Analyze 
your topic to discover keywords, related terms, synonyms. Use scholarly subject encyclopedias for background information.

Search
for articles, books, and documentaries. List relevant databases.

Evaluate
the resources....Are they relevant? Are they current? Peer reviewed? Scholarly or popular?
