Introduction to Credo Reference
9:00 am – 12:00 pm
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.
Presenter: Lisa Hill has been the reference platform trainer at Credo for over ten years. She received her MLS from University of Albany in New York and has worked in public libraries in Massachusetts as a children's and YA librarian.
