Understand your assessment topic. Do some background reading - use reference sources such as Credo (citable academic source) and Wikipedia (Not academic source but good for understanding and keywords on the topic). Read the marking rubric for the assessment in your subject outline and familiarize yourself with what you are required to demonstrate.
Do some searches in the recommended databases, One Search and the web if appropriate. If your results don't match what you are looking for, try different search terms. Use the advanced search features of the database. Check under the Key Resources tab, find your subject code under the Subject Codes tab or look under the Cunningham Case Study tab for recommended databases and other sources.
Evaluate your sources particularly if you are using non academic web sources.
