Entry Features

The entries within Credo Reference are the electronic equivalent of the articles and definitions contained within books. Each entry page carries a great deal of information and features that enhance the electronic version.

An entry page will show you the full text of the encyclopedia article you selected from the results page.  This will include any information you would see if you had the print version of the book in front of you, including any images, footnotes, charts, graphs, etc.
