Credo Reference Upgrade!

Credo Reference is available under our E-Resources. We have recently upgraded Credo and I’m going to go over what that means today.

When you do a topic search in Credo, it now also searches multiple other databases. This means you’ll get results from other databases without having to repeat your search within them! This doesn’t mean it will be a one stop shop for your research, but it is a fantastic place to start and have a great launch pad to continue from.

On the topic page of any search you will get a brief overview of the topic and then below will be other links to references in Credo and then from the other databases. Here is an example of how that will look:

Do you have questions? There’s an easy way to ask questions right at the bottom of your screen!

If you have any questions Credo cannot answer, or about anything else, our library staff is always happy to be of assistance!
