With the help of  Brenda Smith, MA, MLIS
Open Education Librarian and the Liaison Librarian for: Architectural & Engineering Technology (ARET);Open Learning; Philosophy, History & Politics, and my professor, Dr. Tracy Penny Light, I was able to find some websites that were very helpful when researching my topic.

JSTOR is a digital library of academic journals, books, and primary sources.

The TRU Library is also full of awesome secondary sources.

These are all great starting off points and really helped me to research my project and get the primary and secondary sources needed.
