To find a definition for mortgage-backed securities, use Credo Reference Collection and/or Encyclopedia Britannica. Simply search for mortgage backed securities.

Once you have a context, you can find related articles (aka the 2008 Financial Crisis or Freddie Mac/Fannie Mae 'sub-prime' lending) in sources such as Academic Search Complete or Gale that will provide you with more information. In these databases search for the overall topic of mortgage backed securities or try searching for something more specific, like Fannie Mae mortgage backed securities, Fannie Mae subprime, or Fannie Mae Scandal.
