From a Credo Reference press release:

Hundreds of encyclopedias added to Credo’s award-winning reference platform this year.  Enhanced platform provides even more value for researchers

Boston and Oxford, (September 16, 2009) – It’s been a year since Credo Reference, the award winning online reference library, released its new platform, raising the standard for how online reference services should work for libraries. Since then, Credo has substantially expanded the academic content available on the platform, all at no additional cost for Credo Unlimited customers.

“In deciding which titles to add to Credo, we’ve relied on suggestions from customers, prospects, and editorial experts, taking particular note of designations of excellence from RUSA, CILIP, Library Journal and Choice,” commented John G. Dove, Credo President. “We also polled educators and subject librarians from universities with exceptional programs in core academic subjects, paying particular attention to subject encyclopedias on interdisciplinary topics where students are often at a loss to get a good grounding.”

Some of the highlights of the significant augmentation of Credo’s content in the past year are:

* 173 new subject encyclopedias and dictionaries
* 10 new publishers:
* Edinburgh University Press
* Edward Elgar
* M.E. Sharpe
* O.E.C.D.
* Pearson Education
* Perseus
* SAGE Publications
* Springer
* University of Chicago Press
* Willan Publishing
* Comprehensive coverage of 15 core undergraduate subjects
* Now 150+ Credo titles are found in Choice’s list of ‘must-have’ titles for U.S. colleges and universities (Resources for College Libraries)
* Over 25 existing titles updated at no expense to customers

“Users have responded very positively to the continually enhanced Credo Reference platform throughout this past year,” added Dove. “Now with the thoughtful and comprehensive enrichment of content on the platform, they have an unsurpassed resource for accurate and coherent research.”
