Q. What is Credo and Mind Maps?

How do I locate mind maps?


  • Credo Reference is one of our Databases. Mind Maps is a feature within it. You can access Credo Reference from the Library's homepage (http://library.pba.edu) by clicking on Databases at the top, and then navigating to Credo Reference. 
  • Once you open Credo Reference, you'll need to enter your topic in the search box and press enter on the keyboard. For example, we could use the topic of poverty.
  • When the results page loads, there's a graph on the right side of the screen. It looks like a brainstorm spider graph for writing papers. That's the Mind Map.
  • The word Poverty will be at the center, because that's the topic that we're starting with.
  • There's a square with an arrow in the top left corner of the Mind Map. We can click on that to make it full screen.
  • Then we can click on any of the topics coming off of poverty - like poverty in the United States or Poor Relief - and Credo will update the Mind Map to show us additional, related topics. The topics coming off of poverty are called nodes. So nodes are the words that are on the Mind Map that are not the topic we started with.
