Take the Challenge

Before you begin looking for books and articles about your concept, make sure you have a basic understanding of it. Challenge yourself to talk about your concept for one minute by talking to yourself or explaining it to someone else.

Reference sources, such as the subject encyclopedias found in Gale Virtual Reference Library, are a good place to find a general overview and background information about your concept.
