You are fortunate to have a world of information available literally at your fingertips.
In order to thoroughly research and educate yourself about any topic, you must read about the subject in a variety of different academic and scholarly sources. Do not “just Google it” and select whatever sites pop up at the top of the list.
If you want to perform a web search, I recommend Google Scholar, which is designed for students and produces more academic search results, or Google Advanced Search. However, you should supplement your research by using all available databases, online encyclopedias, e-books and print resources.
