Do you have enough background to start a library search?
Reference resources such as encyclopedias and dictionaries can give you enough general background that, when you searching for sources, you will be able to analyze the source and decide where it fits into the scope of your topic.
Reference resources can also give you good search terms to use -- in the way that they are used in the discipline.
Take the time to do the preliminary work before you start searching in earnest, and if you get stuck, come back the these materials to clarify your concepts.
