Credo Helps Students Learn Critical Information Skills with Two New Literati Solutions

Credo, the industry's first provider of solutions for information skills, today announced the availability of Literati School and Literati Student Athlete. Following the launch of Literati Academic and Literati Public, which have been implemented in over 600 institutions in less than a year, these two new solutions enable librarians and educators to cost-effectively help learners of all types gain the information skills they need to succeed.
