Credo 

Credo is an excellent place to begin when you are first learning about a topic. On this site, you will be able to search encyclopedias, dictionaries, and handbooks on topics ranging from Christianity to other religions to the interactions between religion and society. The articles available in these searchable e-reference volumes provide a concise overview of a topic with an authority you can trust. Special search tools like Mind Maps and related pages can help make new connections in your research. Check out the topic pages for images in the public domain that you can cut and paste into presentations without worrying about copyright restrictions. Note that the resources in Credo are automatically included in Sophi Search.

Google Scholar 

Google Scholar is an open index of articles, theses, abstracts, book reviews, and court opinions from scholarly and professional sources. Much of the content in Google Scholar is available for purchase, but if you link your account to Stitt Library you can access FullText@AustinSeminary links within Google Scholar that take you directly to our subscription library content for FREE. This is not a substitute for Sophi Search! Remember that you can always find more complete results and full‐text options by searching in Sophi Search instead of Google Scholar.
