You may be familiar with Mind Maps --- a visual map that links a word or idea to related information. Sometimes it's helpful to actually see information laid out in this way and how different terms and concepts relate to each other. It's a good way to see how a topic can be expanded. Most search terms will generate a Mind Map in Credo Reference. This can help you see other terms and concepts related to the original. All terms in the Mind Map link to other articles, and also will generate more Mind Maps.
