Credo announced its sponsorship of the Digital Frontiers Conference taking place Sept 22-24, 2016 at Rice University in Houston, TX. According to the conference website, “Digital Frontiers is a project to explore creativity and collaboration across disciplinary boundaries in the arena of public humanities and cultural memory.”
Credo announced today that it has integrated the new MLA (8th edition) citation format into all of its platforms, and has created videos to help users understand this change. Widely regarded as a response to the growing importance of citing digital sources in academic work, MLA’s radical change is expected to make it easier for students to responsibly cite their work.
Credo has doubled its Essentials Collections offerings in 2016, bringing the total number of subjects up to twenty-one and counting. With new collections in popular subjects like Technology and Sociology, Essentials Collections are able to help libraries complete print to digital migration, address subject gaps, and better meet the specific needs of their students, faculty, and library budgets.
Join us Wednesday, August 3rd at 2:00 PM EDT for a free 30-minute webinar hosted by Sara Davidson Squibb, Head of User Communication and Instruction at the University of California, Merced.
This webinar will highlight how Credo content can be shared, repurposed, and embedded on library guides through the LibGuides platform. Join us to hear one library’s experience of easily converting Credo guides into local Subject Guides, and how they pointed students to Credo content through search widgets, direct linking to books, and a tutorial for flipped classroom use.
Libraries and classrooms bridging the gap to best prepare students for college level research is the focus of Credo's latest webinar.
