What is Literati by Credo?
Literati is an in-depth research tool available for students and faculty. It provides e-reference books, teaching and learning tools, as well as information literacy tutorials and instruction.
Dictionaries, encyclopedias and much more!

In addition to general and subject specific dictionaries and encyclopedias, Literati by Credo also has thesauri, almanacs, and gazetteers.
Information Literacy Tutorials
Literati also offers a series of video and interactive tutorials on information literacy covering topics like research on the open web, academic integrity, the research process and much more. These can be accessed towards the bottom of the home page beneath where it says "Brown Mackie's Research Tips and Tutorials."
A legitimate Wikipedia!
Literati is many things including being a legitimate Wikipedia meaning it has the same type of content that Wikipedia has except that the information is LEGITIMATE AND CREDIBLE!
The content found on Wikipedia is often outdated and incorrect. It is not information you can trust and more importantly, it is not information you should be using for college work. Literati is EVERYTHING that Wikipedia is not-
- a "professor pleaser" meaning your professor will be happy you used a library resource as opposed to using a .com website
Where to find it
