Credo Reference (Credo)

Credo Online Reference

Academic Core is the base Credo Online Reference collection for college libraries. A subscription to Academic Core can be expanded by adding on subject collections (the Essentials Collections) or individual titles. From the vendor (emphasis added):

With regular updates, this Collection includes 3 million entries from notable subject encyclopedias, handbooks, guides, companions and readers covering over 80 major subject disciplines and more than 6 million research concepts. In addition to full-text content, the Academic Core Collection provides access to more than 1,000 videos and animations, as well as 500,000 contextual visual aids, images, photographs and maps. Combining expertly curated content with customizable technology and dynamic discovery features, Credo's Academic Core Collection is available to libraries as a subscription.

Academic Core used to be called "Premium" Academic Core, as opposed to the sub-collections that were also available at that time. The sub-collections are no longer available.

Essentials Collections are subject collections that can be added to an Academic Core subscription. See the vendor's website for more information.

Individual reference titles are available for one-time purchase and access on Credo Reference Online. See the vendor's website for more information.
