Announcing Credo Reference as a new a multidisciplinary collection of online reference resources. Funded by USF Sarasota/Manatee, the content in Credo is selected by USF librarians.
Credo Reference provides access to one hundred reference resources, such as encyclopedias, dictionaries, and biographical sources chosen to meet a broad range of research needs. Metasearching allows the user to search across all content in the current collection. Each title has an information title page with a description, and a search box for the individual title, so searching can be done at a more precise level. Concept maps are available, as are “gadgets” offering quick look ups for definitions, locations, conversions, quotations and people. Results can be exported into RefWorks, EndNote, ProCite or Reference Manager. Users can also email the abstract or the full-text, save to a file or clipboard, or choose to print. Citation styles offered are APA, MLA, Harvard and Chicago.
