It sounds like you are just starting out so you might want to keep your search quite simple until you can read through a few of the applications of LEAN and decide how you want to refine your topic.
I started with our Summon search tool on the RRU library homepage: http://library.royalroads.ca with the search: "lean production" OR "lean manufacturing" OR "lean supply chain".
This will provide a wide breadth of results that you could scan through to look for ideas on narrowing your topic. You might, for example, want to limit your research to the field of hospital administration or the automobile industry or to a specific company. If you decide to take this route, you could modify your search to something like "Lean production" and "automobile industry".
