Remember: encyclopedia articles from Credo are preferred over Wikipedia articles by your instructors. They also come with properly formatted citations for you to copy into your bibliography!
These books are kept in the Reference Collection. We will photocopy your encyclopedia articles for free, including the information you need for your bibliography. If you're off campus, these articles can be faxed or emailed to you at home.
