Credo Reference

Check out one of our finest online reference resources, Credo Reference. Encyclopedias, dictionaries and other reference books are great sources for reliable information. Reference books are a great way to familiarize yourself with a new topic. Credo Reference makes the process even easier as you can quickly search for relevant entries.

This online resource does a little of everything. Credo boasts a robust array of online reference sources. At your disposal are great reference sources such as the Encyclopedia of School Psychology, Encyclopedia of Sex and Gender, Encyclopedia of Emancipation and Abolition in the Transatlantic World, etc. These sources and more are at your searching fingertips. You can further break down your search by subject in the drop down menu next to the search box or browse the subject lists under the "Find a Book" link.

The Concept Map is a particularly useful tool for visualizing the topic of your research. The tool graphically displays your central topic and related terms in an interconnected map. Scrolling over related terms connects you to articles and further information through a pop up window. Try searching your term in the Concept Map interface to narrow or expand on your topic.

Under the "Gadgets" link an assortment of tools are available. You can convert measurements like imperial pints to other volumes or you can convert fuel consumption. If you're having trouble spelling a word you can use the "Crossword search," using "?" in place of letters, especially useful for crossword puzzle addicts. Other gadget searches include; persons, holidays, quotations, places and definitions.
