Boston and London, July 17, 2007 Credo Reference (formerly Xrefer), provider of customizable online reference collections, is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Southeastern Library Network (SOLINET) to make its service available to its library cooperative members at a discount. Based in Atlanta, SOLINET serves the southeastern United States and the Caribbean.

With this new partnership, SOLINET's members will receive a discount to Credo Reference, which features full-text, cross-searchable content covering every major subject, from over 270 titles and 57 publishers. The content is enriched with images, sound files, animations, maps and customizable data tables, providing users with accurate, contextual results. To launch the relationship, Credo Reference and SOLINET are offering an introductory promotion to members. Nineteen diverse SOLINET libraries have already taken advantage of the offer and subscribed to Credo's Ready-Reference collection, including such institutions as Emory University, Grambling State University, Jackson State Community College, Middle Tennessee State University and Presbyterian College.

"We're excited to offer this innovative reference product to our students and faculty," commented Kitty McNeill, Director of the Oxford College Library at Emory. "Emory is focused on increasing its full-text online materials, and Credo will be an integral part of that collection."

"We're very pleased about this new partnership with SOLINET," added Jeffrey LaPlante, Credo Reference's Senior Vice-President of Sales. "SOLINET has always worked to help their member libraries to become valued assets of their communities and cornerstones of the world's information infrastructure. Credo Reference, with its full-text, cross-searchable content, will go a long way towards helping them reach those goals."
