Credo Reference is an online database of more than 3 million entries in over 600 reference books. It is helpful when you’re developing a topic for an assignment, because it provides brief topic overviews and links to related entries in Credo Reference resources. You can also follow links from Credo Reference into other resources provided by the Durham Tech Library, including the library catalog and online databases.
Additionally, you can browse reference books by subject area, use the “image search” option to find pictures related to a topic and explore the “mind map” search strategy to brainstorm and discover related terms to your search term.
When you have become comfortable with the basic searches, the “advanced search” feature allows you to be more exact in your search strategies. If you are feeling very confident and a little adventurous, also check out the “power search” tips from the “advanced search” page.
