Use this database to search the online version of hundreds of reference books in a broad range of subjects, including general and specialized dictionaries, handbooks and encyclopedias. Credo Reference helps you find authoritative answers fast.
Use our catalog to find books. Use the buttons on the bottom half of the screen to do a specific kind of search:
- For a basic search matching some keywords, just do a Keyword search. (This is the default page you'll get to by clicking the link above.) You'll get more results this way, but they may be less relevant.
- If you have a particular book or author in mind, do an Author or Title search.
- If you want to find books on a particular subject, try a Subject search. This will lead you to a list of subject headings related to your topic. (Finding the correct subject heading to use may take a bit of trial and error -- a keyword search might yield some books of interest, and then you can click on the subject headings in those records to find further reading.)
Some examples of subject headings:
- Information technology
- Computer security
- Computer networks
Ask a librarian for help if you're having trouble finding books on your topic.
