When doing academic research you are joining a "conversation" among scholars, who publish their works in scholarly books and journals. College level work requires use of information from "scholarly," NOT "popular" publications:
It can help in developing a research topic to look at general overviews first in reference books or other resources. Citations and bibliographies can lead you to respected authors in the field, and other books, articles, or websites.
** Please also note: Trial access to Bibliography of Asian Studies and the South and Southeast Asian Art and Archaeology Index will be added the beginning of October. These tools will be available only for the month of October in order that you may use them as resources for a course research project. The listed citations should link to any articles our library provides where available.
