Research 

Google is often the "go-to" resource for online research. However, search results on Google are sometimes overwhelming because of the advertisements and number of hits. Try some of these databases and search engines to help with your research. 

Remember, these sites, just like Google, don't speak English! Use key words to help with your search.
