Using Wikipedia

 

Using Wikipedia can be a great place to start your research.  You can learn about a topic, much like you can in Credo Reference, but you can also find links to other sources.   Never cite Wikipedia, but use it as a jumping off point for your research.  

For example, look up single sex education

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Single-sex_education 

- you will see there is a long history about this topic and if you scroll to the bottom, you will see a list of references.  Many link out to the original article, but some do not.  You can actually take the title of an article and try copying into one of our databases to see if we have the full-text of the article.
