Credo Reference – Trial Access

Credo Reference is a completely customizable general reference solution for learners and librarians.  

Credo Reference is a vast, full-text online reference service. The collection includes over three million entries from more than 390 well-regarded titles from 60+ of the best reference publishers. Credo’s collection is intelligently integrated with millions of cross-references and contains dictionaries, bilingual dictionaries, thesauri, encyclopedias, quotations and atlases, plus a wide range of subject-specific titles covering everything from art to accountancy, science to Shakespeare, and law to literature. Committed to continuous improvement, Credo recently launched an innovative and enhanced interface that provides for seamless searching from Credo into your other library resources, among many other new features.

The BSC Library has 30-day trial access to this resource. 

We ask you to use this resource during the next 30 days and give us your comments.  That will help us determine if Credo Reference is something we should add to the Library’s suite of database products.
