Library Adds Credo Reference

The BSC Library has added Credo Reference to its suite of database products.  Credo does for reference publications what many other databases do for journals and magazines – it aggregates the content and makes it searchable.  Currently, you can search 3,261,517 full-text entries in 426 reference books through Credo. 

You can also execute searches of the ODIN library catalog, Academic Search Premiere, and Britannica Online Academic Edition via Credo.  In addition, there are links to BSC’s Library blog, Databases (Articles & More) page,  Finding Information page, and Ask a Librarian page. 

The gadgets are cool, too.   Unsure how to pronounce a word?  Try the pronunciation gadget.    

To learn the fine points of using Credo so you can make the most of its potential, take the online tours, use the help screens, or talk to a BSC librarian. 

Credo Reference is a very robust resource.   Check it out!
