Research Begins Here

Database logos

When accessing the databases off-campus, use your 14-digit library card number, which you can find on the back of your student id. If you do not have a library account you may request one at this link: Get a Library Account
This account number will also be needed when requesting books from the Library Catalog. See Finding Books below.

Credo Reference   Background information is the beginning of all research. Learn about your topic in Credo Reference, a subject-specific encyclopedia, and dictionary database. Use the MindMap function to see related terms, keywords, and people surrounding your topic.

From the background information you develop a focus within your topic. This initial information identifies the keywords  (the language of the scholars within your topic) that help you dig deeper. Use the keywords to develop search strategies within the research article collections. What has been researched and published on your topic? Use this information to develop your knowledge base and complete your assignments.
