Introduction to Credo Reference
August 29-31, 2018 in West Texas

Credo Reference is one of TexShare's newest additions. The Credo Complete Core Collection is one-stop exploratory search platform containing over 1,000 full-text reference titles, plus thousands of images and videos - making it a great starting point for homework and school projects, academic research, job search preparation, and other reference needs.

This in-person workshop will serve as a general overview of Credo Reference, give a full platform tour, and discuss how to get the most usage out of this reference service at your library.
