Credo Updates Online Reference Service

By Africa S. Hands

From the press release:

This intuitive interface makes it easier for learners to focus on discovering information while an improved mobile experience for smartphones and tablets demonstrates Credo’s commitment to providing high-quality content anytime, anywhere. A new “Listen” feature increases accessibility by reading content aloud. A translation tool will also be available, allowing Topic Pages and entries to be viewed in dozens of different languages.

The updated layout for Credo’s signature Topic Pages facilitates quick and easy discovery of the resources best suited to users’ needs. Popular as a starting point in the research process, Topic Pages connect users to real-time results from library-selected resources, offering a helpful solution for those who find themselves stuck in one database without clear pathways to other resources relevant to their search. These 10,000-plus Topic Pages are now easier to navigate whether at the library or on the go, increasing access to the high-quality information people need in their academic, professional or personal lives.
