Does your school have a library website? Usually there are databases that are linked to it to help you search for resources.

Keep your sources peer reviewed (i.e., journal articles) - and make sure you reference properly! See: the Purdue OWL website for referencing methods.

Google Scholar was already mentioned - this may also help:
DOAJ -- Directory of Open Access Journals (open source journals). Your university library will likely be linked with ebscohost or some other resource - use it as it probably has some of the best resources available.

Remember, news sites and wikipedia are not valid resources (from a scientific perspective).

College SHOULD be tough. I make my students work hard to earn their grades.

I would also add that if you have access to your library's online catalog, you can access a lot of journals through the library. Personally, I use Web of Science (which most libraries seem to have access to), which will search peer reviewed articles. The nice thing is that you can see what articles the article of interest cites and what articles cite that article, both of which are often of interest to your topic, so it makes it very easy to find a number of articles quickly.
