“The award-winning SAGE Reference line is a noteworthy addition to our service,” added John Dove, Credo President. “Librarians have long called for the option of having reference content available on the platform of their choice. Adding almost 70 subject encyclopedias from SAGE Reference to Credo Reference means that we’re moving closer to that vision. Our librarians and end users will continue to experience Credo as one grand encyclopedia, now with even more subjects for inquiry.”
