New look for Credo Reference

What you'll see in the updated Credo:
We have added a number of new features to the site, as well as updating and improving our current features:

Faceted browsing -- REFINE searches by subject, person, location, type of content, and entries with images, animations or audio. Plus, quickly locate our long, encyclopedic entries.

LINK directly from CREDO into your other online resources! View search results in another library resource with one click - through our new "Related Resources" feature. Library configurable.

MULTILINGUAL interface -- change the interface language to Spanish, French, Chinese, Polish or Urdu.

New, vastly improved CONCEPT MAP -- invaluable for visual learners and mind mappers.

SAVED RESULTS & CITATION MANAGEMENT -- export to your tool of choice -- RefWorks, EndNote and others. BOOKMARK in your favorite site -, Facebook and many more.

Thoroughly EXPLORE each title by quickly locating people and places cited, images, and contributors. Hover mouse over index for article preview.

BROWSE for books not only by subject, title or type but now by Dewey or Library of Congress classifications.

One of our key new features is the ability to provide seamless navigation from Credo Reference into other library resources - your OPAC, journals databases, etc. For more information about setting up these Resource Links, download instructions (pdf).

You can begin setting up these links now before the August release. Any links will transfer to the new site.
