Use JumboSearch to find out what kinds of sources are immediately available to you at Tufts. JumboSearch includes results from our library catalog (books, multimedia resources, etc.) as well as journal articles.
It's also legitimate and acceptable to start by searching the open web: Google Scholar and Wikipedia can be great starting points! Researchers' or companies' websites, social media accounts, or public press releases can help you figure out how topics are being presented to a general audience.
