Credo Reference is an easy to use reference tool for research projects and homework. A giant online collection that searches hundreds of encyclopedias, dictionaries, thesauri, quotations and subject specific titles as well as 200,000+ images and audio files and nearly 100 videos.

Individual Credo Reference books will show up in your topic searches in our GIL-Find online book catalog. Use the "View It" tab to view online books like these.

You can also find Credo Reference as a database in GALILEO (look in Databases A to Z, under "C")

Off-campus, you must log in with your MGA email user name and password to view online resources like these.

In Credo, the Concept Map displays the connections between search results in a visual, interactive and easy-to-use format. It enables users to quickly find information when they don't know what to look for, when they need topic ideas for papers or research projects, or want to expand their knowledge of a given area.

Topic Pages provide context and vocabulary around a subject.  They act as a research starting point on one easy to navigate page.
