Now that you are ready to try some of the search words you selected, you need to select a resource to search. With all the databases available to you at Carnegie Mellon University Libraries, this can be daunting.
You can try searching the university website (use advance to focus your search).
However, sometimes searching one or two resources can save you time. Try the databases suggested here:
