Finding Inspiration Using Wikipedia & Credo Reference

Thinking of synonyms for the important parts of your research question can be difficult. If you’re having trouble coming up with keywords and need some inspiration, we recommend Credo Reference or Wikipedia.

These resources have table of contents pages or mind maps that can serve as helpful inspiration for narrowing your topic or coming up with terms to search. Look at these examples for the topic “greenhouse gas.”
