Viewing Tips

  • Don't hear any sound? That's okay because there is no sound. Simply look for the mouse icon in the video to follow along.
  • Images a bit fuzzy? I know, it's annoying. Just hang in there, because I'm working towards a solution. 
  • The videos below can be expanded to fill your screen. Simply look for the following icon, located in the lower right corner of the video screen: 

Artemis Literary Sources*- Topic Finder

* also known as Gale Literary Sources

Credo Reference Mind Map 

A feature very similar to the Artemis Topic Finder, the Credo Mind Map can be found in the Credo Reference database. When you enter a search term, you will see a spider-web type image on the left-side of the screen (for most results). This is an interactive feature that allows you to see connected terms/concepts and to explore additional reference sources based on those terms/concepts.
