Credo features full text content, including images, from over 500 reference books covering a broad range of subjects. Narrow the results by subject, entry type, media, person, and publication date. Search any topic or subject in Credo Reference content and continue the search in the Library Catalog and online databases from the Credo screen for additional information.
