Need some definitions: Use CREDO not Wikipedia

Credo is an online, full text, reference library which includes encyclopedias, dictionaries, thesauri and books of quotations, as well as subject specific titles from art, to literature, to law. It is a paid subscription service that JCU staff and students can access.

The advantage of Credo over Wikipedia is that Credo's articles are from reputable publishers who review their sources. A short YouTube clip by Bryant Librarian done in 2011 explains in more detail the advantages of Credo over Wikipedia.
