Credo Reference

Product Highlights

Academic Core

Academic Core is a vast, full-text online reference service. The collection includes over three million entries from more than 600 well-regarded titles from 70+ 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.

Academic Core consists of all titles currently available and all new titles released during the course of the subscription term. Once new titles are released, you automatically have access to these new titles. Credo updates books as new editions become available from the publisher; subscribers automatically receive the latest edition.

All Credo Reference subscriptions are unlimited in-library and remote user access. In our ongoing commitment to helping libraries get the most out of their subscription, Credo Reference provides MARC records for all titles, free training webinars, user guides, and many other promoting tools and capabilities.
