Your best source of information for an introduction to research methods is your instructor or supervisor. Ask them for their recommendations of useful introductory resources. If you are looking for further information, I have put together some of my favourite titles held by UVic Libraries. Check back again, I'm always adding new titles to this list. Many print editions of these books are housed in the Curriculum Library's Quick Reference section. Because these are so popular, they are reference books and cannot be borrowed. But that means they will always be on the shelf when you want them.
