Best Best: CREDO

Brief Wikipedia-like overviews can:

  • provide more information on a topic of interest
  • focus on key concepts, experts and research, which can
  • give you some ideas for narrowing down an essay topic

But you don't want to cite Wikipedia as a source in the bibliography of an academic paper.

Best Best: Books

Books can often provide the detailed background and overview information about your topic that you won't be able to find in encyclopedias (too short) or journal articles (too focused on very specific research questions or ideas).

You can find both print and ebooks (as well as videos and reports) using the library catalogue box below.
