The End of a Year, The Start of a Paper

Snow_at_the_LakeThere are few times of the year more chaotic to college researchers than the month of December: finals preparations and holiday plans swirl around like a stress-themed snow globe. And through it all is the constant anxiety of knowing that several papers will have to be due before you can walk out the door into that sweet, crisp mid-winter freedom. If only there were some way to explore topics for your papers in a way that easily connected you to authoritative resources, images, full-length books, etc…

Well, researchers, you’ve come to the right place. Credo can hook you up with all of that and more through our Topic Pages. Here are a few Decembery Topic Pages for you to peruse on your way to starting your paper and ending your semester!
