You will want to use a library database to track down peer-reviewed articles and other scholarly sources. There are two types of databases:
Subject Database A searchable collection of scholarly journals in a particular field of study such as psychology or education.
Multidisciplinary Database A searchable collection of scholarly journals from a large collection of fields, often humanities, social sciences, and more. ProQuest is a good example of a multidisciplinary database.
