The Library has declared the week of Oct. 24 to be Zombie Week. Join us nightly from 7-9 for zombie movies and board games. It’s BYOB (Bring Your Own Brains), but we’ll supply the popcorn and candy.

Are you having trouble getting started on your research project?
Has your professor rejected your topic for being too broad or too narrow?
Do you feel like you need a translator just to read scholarly journal articles on your topic?
Credo can help!
The Library’s newest research tool is a great place to start when developing or refining a research topic. A scholarly alternative to Wikipedia or Google, Credo is a searchable collection of information from reputable sources such as subject-specific encyclopedias and reference books. It also has some special features designed to help you get started with a research project:
Mind Maps: Brainstorm topic ideas, explore connections, and narrow (or broaden) your focus.
Topic Pages: Find suggested resources on common topics, all collected in one place.
Links to Other Library Resources: College-level research requires going beyond the encyclopedia. Credo bridges that gap by linking directly to relevant articles from scholarly journals in the Library’s other databases.
You can access Credo from the Library’s Online Database A to Z page or by going to search.credoreference.com
For more help with research topic development, schedule an appointment with a research librarian.
