10 June 2009. It's now easier to access Credo Reference remotely. As a result of significant enhancements to the remote user login process, it's much easier for users to find libraries to which they belong and that subscribe to Credo's award-winning online reference library.
The new login process aids remote users in discovering a library through which they can access Credo Reference's online collection of over three million cross-searchable entries from over 400 key titles and 63 publishers. Credo's library discovery page provides three ways for users to locate their library:
Based on the geo-location of a user's IP address, the discovery page displays links to libraries closest to the user.
For users who may not be physically close to their library, the discovery page allows them to select a library using country, region and city dropdown menus.
Users who are travelling can also search for their library by name.
After selecting a library, remote users are taken directly to their library's customizable login page. Once logged in, they're just a click away from Credo Reference's guided navigation, visualization tools and all the other key features for which Credo is known. To simplify subsequent visits, Credo Reference will remember which library a user selects.
"Users arrive at Credo through many different avenues besides their library's computers or library's web site: from the web, a link that's been emailed to them, a citation on another web site, or a variety of other ways," commented Mike Sweet, Credo CEO. "We continually work to make the Credo Reference experience the smoothest, most user-friendly research process possible. This enhancement will greatly help users who arrive at Credo through diverse avenues, find their library web site and start using Credo."
