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.

For a guide to an entry page, please refer to the diagram and key below:


  1. The name of the article and the name of the Credo title from which the article was pulled. Click the name of the book to be brought to that book's table of contents.

  2. Search or browse this specific title individually.  Click "next article" or "previous article" to essentially turn the page of the ebook.

  3. Listen to, email, post to social media, print to pdf, save to the platform, share to a citation management system or translate the article into any one of over 60 languages.  (Note: Saving a result to the platform is session-based. When you log out, you will lose your results - so do remember to save permanently before logging out. When you save to the platform you will have the option to email entries and export citations from the "Saved Results" screen - see link in top toolbar.)

  4. Relevant Topic Pages to your currently displayed article will be listed here.

  5. This is the full text of the article.  You'll read here, exactly what you would read if you had the print version of the book in front of you, including any charts, images, maps or graphs.

  6. Articles from your Credo title list that share the same entry heading will be found here.  Click an entry heading to navigate to the full text entry.

  7. A full citation is displayed on the bottom of every entry page. Citations are available in four formats; click the citation name to change the citation layout right on the screen.  CLick the Save option to save the citation to “My Saved Results” or to your favorite citation management system.

  8. Continue searching on your topic by clicking one of these database links.  These database links will pass your current entry heading term through to the result page of the listed database.  Continue searching in your library's trusted resources.
