Some tips:

1) Your challenge is NOT to find *something* on your topic, it's to find the most appropriate information–of the best quality–for your task! You won't necessarily use the first materials you find.

2) Choose a topic that's meaningful to you personally.  You'll do a better job.

3) Use Advanced Search for more control over your search.
