Mind map

One really helpful way to research a topic is to build a Mind Map.  Mind Mapping is a way of visually connecting different ideas and their interrelated ideas.  As you consider the cultural topic you want to research in connection with Buddhism, also consider the different connections that stem from this topic.  Below is an example of a Buddhism Mind Map from Credo Reference (A Reference Database available through the GCC Library).  To the right are displayed articles and to the left is the Mind Map.  Toggle between the two to see the connections and articles associated with each node on the map.
