In the Online Library: Literati by Credo

If you are unfamiliar with a topic or word and you want to learn more before beginning in-depth research, your first choice may often be "googling" the word or using Wikipedia. These are options that may or may not provide you with the correct (or even relevant) information. Instead, try Literati by Credo in the Online Library.

Literati by Credo is an in depth research tool that provides access to over 600 e-reference books. This includes general and subject-specific dictionaries, encyclopedias, and more. Use the search box to look up subjects or definitions or use the Find Topics & Books to search in a specific dictionary or encyclopedia. 

To search in Literati by Credo, login to and click the Library link. Literati by Credo can be found under Find by Resource > All Resources.
