Credo is an easy-to-use tool for starting research. Use this box to search hundreds of full-text reference titles, as well as 500,000+ images and audio files and over 1,000 videos.


Encyclopedias and dictionaries are a great way to start your research.  They offer a basic overview of your topic and can lead you to more specific topic. Don't forget to look at the bibliography that accompanies most articles as there may be good articles that you can use in your research.
