|The Britannica Concise Encyclopedia is just one of many encyclopedias available in the Trefry Library. Read on to learn how to find more.|
You can start by typing simple keywords that describe your topic into the search box on the Credo homepage. Credo will return entries from reference tools (including encyclopedias) that match your keywords.
Or, browse all of the available reference titles in Credo. You can use the "all subjects" menu to see titles related to a particular topic. Tip: Use the "title contains" search box to search for those with "encyclopedia" in the title, if you really need to use encyclopedias as a source. (Keep in mind that all types of references sources in Credo are acceptable for background information in your papers.)

Remember: reference sources like encyclopedias are meant to give a brief overview of a topic, making them perfect for background information. For more in-depth detail and analysis, you'll need to turn to scholarly sources.
