Researching a topic? You’ve probably been warned about the perils of using Wikipedia for your academic work, but what’s the alternative? The Library has recently subscribed to an excellent resource, called Credo Reference. Using Credo, you can find quality information from respected reference works, such as encyclopedias and dictionaries. It’s very easy to use and includes a mind mapping option, which allows you to see concepts that relate to your topic area. There is also an image search and you are free to use these images in your academic work (remember to cite and reference it).
