What is Literati by Credo?
Literati by Credo provides users a simplified research experience. Users can quickly access full-text reference books and helpful tools all right from one source. It’s as easy as searching for your subject and selecting whether you want to access all formats, or those with images, audio or video.
How the Credo Integration Works
Through a unique partnership, Boopsie has assisted Credo with creating a fully-functional HTML5 responsive design mobile site. This means anyone on any mobile-ready device can access the Credo Integration. With no additional app to download, you don’t have to worry about taking up your smartphone or tablet’s memory.
Check Out the Credo Integration in Action!
The Library of Virginia has a partnership with Credo that allows all public libraries in the state to access Literati Public. We’ll take a look at Southside Regional Library’s Credo Integration, which is found in their Main Menu.
If you are located in the state of Virginia or you are logged into your library account, you can just select the Literati channel to launch the website immediately. If you are outside of the state of Virginia and not logged into your library account, you will be directed to a webpage that notifies you that you have to be logged-in in order to access the website.
After you’ve logged in, you’ll be shown the Main Screen. Perform a search in the search bar to see results.
Now you have a listing of available resources in regards to “cats”. If you select Images, you are shown a listing of resources that have images of cats.
After you select an entry, such as “Curious Cats” in DK Eyewitness Books: Cats, you are taken to the full-text article.
The images automatically re-size to fit your screen, so if you have a tablet or a smartphone, the graphics will display nicely.
The Audio tab in this case returns examples of pronunciation of terms.
Another helpful resource available is that at the end of the articles there are APA, MLA, Chicago and Harvard styled citations to provide easy citations.
