Credo Reference Database - Background Information

Background Information: Keywords + Mind Map and Filters

Credo Reference is a great starting point for background information.  You will use background information to introduce your topic to your audience and provide them with the context to fully understand your presentation. Background information consists of  definitions, vocabulary, basic facts, and the main ideas surrounding your topic.  Think of background information as a framework. You will build on this information with  more in-depth information you'll locate in library databases that contain articles from Newspapers, Magazines, Trade Journals, as well as Peer-Reviewed Articles from Academic Journals.
