Welcome, first year students.
This course guide contains a small group of recommended tools for finding academic sources on topics pertaining to your research questions.
Before searching for academic books and articles, you might look for a topical overview or general explanation of the issue you're studying. Credo Reference, a tool containing full text entries from specialized encyclopedias, is a good place to look for overviews and explanations.
Credo Reference provides an online reference collection of over 617 reference books. This collection includes various dictionaries and encyclopedias, as well as a broad range of subject-specific titles covering everything from art geography and law to technology.
