Other helpful hints:

I found it very useful to look at suggestions sites may have.  If I found something on a site like Amazon, Youtube, or slidesharer the suggestions the sites offered provided other useful resources.  I also found it very valuable to look at other people's tags.  Another thing that helped me a lot was Badgerlink.  It is very easy to access from school, but you may have to enter your library card number in if accessing it from home.
