Another good research site is:

http://www.bartleby.com/

And just a note about wikipedia. Most scholars and professionals will not take the articles found there as completely trustworthy. One major problem is that it is written by many different people, which often results in inconsistencies and contradictions of fact within the same article; another problem is that one never knows the qualifications or agendas of the authors.

Some of the articles on Wikipedia aren't very good although the majority seem alright to an extent.. for example the articles may not go into the depth that other encyclopdias offer... but they do offer good related links that you don't have to search for to get

You bring up a good point, and there are indeed many good articles there; however, the same considerations about the articles also applies to the links, which may not be 1) all inclusive or 2) from widely accepted sources or qualified writers. These links point to other sources which must be then classified by:
(a) the time of its production, (:thumbsup: the place of its production, © the manner in which the author came by his information, and (d) the author's personal status or position to know what is presented. I am afraid that in many instances, secondary sources are used instead of primary.
