Never pay for an article. Albertsons Library either owns it or can get it for you for free.
Begin your search with library article databases.
Choose good keywords; experiment with various keywords; this is 80% of your success.
Once you start reading the existing literature, it will become more clear how to construct your literature review.
Use a system to organize your articles.
Contact your librarian for any type of question involving any of this. Email, call, visit.
