Wikipedia can be a good place to start, but using library resources will transform you from a pseudo-researcher into a legitimate researcher. Visit Hunter Library’s Research Help and Reference page for assistance. If you prefer to talk with someone in person, visit the Reference Desk, to the left of Java City Café. Reference librarians are friendly, knowledgeable, and able to help you navigate a variety of useful resources. Most importantly, consulting a reference librarian saves you from wasting time and energy on unproductive searches. A reference librarian also can help you adjust your research question if finding sources becomes problematic.
