Researching and Citations at FLITE
Starting with Credo Reference gives you basic background information on as many topics as Wikipedia, all cross-linked and reliable. Use Credo Reference for other classes, especially those classes with instructors who don't want you to use Wikipedia.
A good beginning article database is General OneFile. Click on the "Home Page" tab to begin, especially if you can't find words with a Subject search.
FLITE has more than 100 different databases. We learned to use one general database to begin this assignment. You will use other more specialized databases as you move through your classes at Ferris.
