Library Introduces Credo Reference

OWU Libraries are introducing Credo Reference this semester, a new online reference site offering coverage of all major subject areas. The site includes access to millions of full-text entries from nearly 640 reference books, making it an excellent starting place for background information on most academic topics.

Credo’s Topic Pages offer overviews for over 10,000 topics. Articles on each topic page are followed by suggested resources from other library resources such as research databases, catalogs, and scholarly websites.

Other entries come from well-known reference sources, many of which include suggestions for further reading and links to connect readers to those resources.

Credo can be a good resource for those just beginning research into unfamiliar topics and a good lead into more subject-specific research databases. For a brief introduction to the site, check out the following video:
