"Research can be difficult, but you don't have to start from scratch if you follow the clues left by scholars who have gone before you!"

As you conduct your research, you will need to make note of the additional resources (book, book chapter, journal article) you identify in the bibliographies, references, notes and footnotes of the sources you are using.
