Doherty Library has acquired a new exciting resource beginning July 1, 2009 and available for the second summer session. This resource is Credo Reference.
Credo Reference is the dream of those who want to break the Wikipedia habit. Credo has all that Wikipedia has and more. It’s quick, it’s easy and it’s available 24/7 at any computer. Unlike Wikipedia, however, Credo Reference is made up of 401 different resources and all of them are authoritative. When you type a term into Credo, the database searches all 401 resources, so you find a variety of points of view on the same subject. These points of view are all by respected scholars in their fields. Moreover, Credo reference contains specialized encyclopedias, dictionaries, biographies, and quotation books. Many of these specialized resources can be cited as reliable information in your papers. Credo also has cool features like a measurement converter and a crossword puzzle solver. Credo can be found on the library website under Databases by Title and Databases by Subject. You can also click here and give it a try.
