Today Credo announced the launch of its new Credo Insights assessment and reporting platform, included within its highly-acclaimed InfoLit Modules. The graphical interface provides a robust view of assessment and usage data, which are critical components of any successful library instruction strategy. Persistence, GPA levels, and graduation rates are all impacted by students’ information literacy skills, and the ability to drill down into specific assessment questions allowing librarians to respond to problem areas more quickly and effectively than ever before.
Credo is further broadening its “Real-time Reference” content category by offering researchers access to dozens of articles from The Conversation. Written by faculty and researchers, The Conversation is well-known for the academic rigor its subject-matter experts bring to investigations of issues affecting society today.

Sponsored by Credo Reference, the award consists of $5,000 and a citation to an individual (or individuals) that has made a distinguished contribution to reference librarianship.
