    When I need to find technical papers I go to my university's library website. From there I can search for online journals from various sources. If your off campus you need a valid student id to use this resources, but if you go to the library itself you can get access to these resources from their computers.

    If your a university student, try going to the library and ask if they have a similiar service.

    If your not a university student, then go to a university that has this type of service.

    it depends on what i am looking for. for general information i use a search engine, for more specific things i use forums, especially this one since there are a lot of past articles and so on.

    when it comes to finding whole documents, etc. i use imesh or i look at TextFiles.com.
