Credo and TexShare, a consortium of over 700 libraries in Texas, have announced a new partnership to increase access to high-quality digital research materials for millions of Texans. Credo Online Reference Service will support the Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC), through the TexShare consortium, in its goals of closing the digital divide, helping Texans better navigate the world of online information, and providing residents of all ages and backgrounds with the tools they need to conduct excellent research.
Credo releases today the final publication of The Credo FYE Guide: Practices for Enhancing Instruction, an interactive e-guide designed to help academic librarians supporting the first year experience.
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.
