You Mean There’s Something Better Than Wikipedia?? Part 2

I hope that most of you have had the opportunity to use Credo Reference by now.  As you will recall, it is a database of 635 online reference books that has scholarly information.  If you want to use the information in a paper, click APA, MLA, Chicago, or Harvard format to see how it should be cited.

Since I had mentioned in the last blog entry that this database is continually being updated with new and updated sources, the following titles have just been added:

  • The 2011 Annual Register: World Events 2010

 Whether you’re looking for topics, people, dates, images, definitions, pronunciations, holidays/festivals, conversions, or even a crossword solver, Credo Reference is an excellent resource to use.  It even has “Topic Pages” which can be used as a one-stop shopping center for finding library information.  These pages have background information, journal articles, titles of books, images, videos, and related information for topics, people, places, events, etc.  So, if you haven’t had a chance to use Credo Reference, please take a few minutes to browse this user-friendly resource.  You’ll be glad you did!                                                                                              J.A.S.
