Credo Reference - Start your research by reading background information on a topic such as "global warming" or "DNA" from one of Credo's topic pages. Following a topic page, you will see reference articles and links to books in the online catalog, as well as journal articles in databases. If your search does not bring up a topic page, you will see relevant reference articles and links to journal articles in databases. Credo is a good tool for narrowing your topic and finding relevant sources.
