Running a keyword search in Credo will search the full text and entry headings of millions of reference entries and thousands of topic pages. Type a search term in the box and click "search". You will be brought to a results page. If there is a topic Page that matches your search term, it will be listed at the top of your results. For more information on Topic Pages, watch our Topic Page Tour! Reference entries from your Credo Reference title list are listed down the page. On the left side of the screen you have the option to filter your results by subject, entry type, media, person's name or print publication date. If you'd like to expand your research outside of Credo Reference, use the drop down menu on the right and choose a database provided by your library. Click search and you will execute a search directly into the hosting platform's database. This opens in a new tab, so I can easily get back to my Credo screen. Click an entry heading to open a full text article - every entry page is set up in the same way. We tell you the name of the book we've taken this from, the name of the entry and options to save this entry for your session...or more permanently right away. On this screen you see exactly what you would read if you had the print version of the book open in front of you including any images. Every entry has a full citation available at the bottom of the screen available in APA, Chicago, Harvard and MLA citation format. Upload your citations into your favorite citation management system. Hyperlinks within the full text, will bring you to new entries within the same book you currently exploring. Related entries will link you to lists of entries related to your current article within your Credo Platform, and related resources will allow you to expand your research outside of Credo Reference and into your library's other trusted resources.
