Credo Releases 12 New Perpetual Access and Subscription Collections
Credo announced that it launched 12 new and updated Subject and Publisher Collections, adding to the more than 75 collections currently available for perpetual purchase or subscription. Libraries now have even more options for enhancing their Literati solution or Credo Online Reference Service with essential titles.
News titles include the following:
- CQ Press Collection: With titles such as The Presidency A to Z, Encyclopedia of Politics and Religion, and The Contemporary Middle East: A Documentary History, the CQ Press Collection offers 16 reference works that cover key topics in U.S. History and Political Science.
- CRC Press Collection: Offering 11 titles, including French’s Index of Differential Diagnosis: An A-Z, Clark’s Pocket Handbook for Radiographers, and Illustrated Pharmacology for Nurses, nursing and medical students at the undergraduate level as well as clinical professionals will find that this collection greatly enhances both research and practice.
- Economics Collection: The 18 titles included in Credo’s Economics Collection provide a well-rounded view of macroeconomics, economic decline, social economics, wealth, and international economics.
- Philosophy Collection: Credo’s Philosophy Collection presents 35 top-tier reference titles from five of the most notable publishers in the field of Philosophy: Routledge, Brill, Elsevier, Wiley, and SAGE.
- Leadership Collection: The Leadership Collection from Credo features 20 key titles from Business Expert Press and SAGE Reference on topics foundational to success in business and management.
Credo has also released updates to seven existing Subject and Publisher Collections, including the popular Focus Medica Health Animation Collection and the Omnigraphics Health Reference Series. By embedding these high-quality reference collections in the award-winning Literati solution, libraries are able to build deep, specific ebook collections and combine authoritative content with innovative, customizable technology that links users of reference through to all of their library’s resources.
“While Literati is significantly more than a reference database, the scholarly reference content that comprises Literati’s foundation is integral to its value as an information skills solution,” says Carol Helton, Credo’s executive vice president of Customer Solutions and Marketing. “Credo gives librarians the tools that they need to extend the learning moment so users can develop critical information literacy skills while addressing their immediate information and research needs.”
