Late last spring the Library subscribed to Credo Reference.
Credo Reference is an online reference collection that currently provides access to the full text of 343 highly regarded reference titles. Images, sound files, animations, and videos are included when available.
Credo Reference contains dictionaries, bilingual dictionaries, thesauri, encyclopedias, quotations resources, atlases, plus a wide range or subject-specific titles. Subject areas include art, business, geography, history, literature, music, philosophy, science, social sciences, and technology. Individual titles, subject sets, or the entire collection can be searched.
