Gear Support Structures

Fellow makers,

After a career in Electrical Engineering, I am finally able to follow my interests in robotics and machines that move. Mechanical Engineering and design is really forcing my brain to re-wire itself.  I'm really struggling with designing with gears.  While the Internet is awash with resources on how to design the gears themselves, I've not found much on how to actually use gears, how to mount them, support structures, using bearings, etc. Does anyone know of any web resources that could help teach me some best practices on creating gear support structures?  I probably just don't know the correct terms to search for.  Thanks!
