Credo Reference Launches Literati Public
Building on the success of Literati by Credo, Credo Reference announced plans to serve public libraries with Literati Public, a new expression of its suite of Digital and Information Literacy solutions. Literati Public, developed in close partnership with public librarians, is a highly customizable solution that promotes the mission of public libraries by combining Credo’s content with newly developed platform technology.
Literati Public offers libraries a broad collection of ebooks tailored to the needs of public libraries and newly developed tools and services to help them promote their brand, events, and outreach programs and to extend their valuable services to the community.
Literati Public will help libraries to meet their goals in key areas, including:
- Community outreach
- Local school collaboration
- Digital literacy education
- Library marketing and promotion
- Usage of library resources
Literati Public will be previewed at the upcoming ALA Annual conference in Anaheim, Calif. The solution will be generally available in October 2012.
