BOSTON and OXFORD, England, April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Credo, the industry leader for information skills solutions, today announced several significant achievements in the first quarter of 2013. In addition to launching Literati School and Literati Student Athlete, solutions that combine authoritative scholarly content, innovative technologies and customizable services, the company's Literati Public was recognized with a prestigious SIIA CODiE Award and Literati Academic was nominated for an SIIA CODiE Award as well.
Adding to this momentum, Credo acquired OnlineTutorSolutions.com, an addition that will enhance Literati solutions by giving students on-demand access to state-certified teachers, and integrated a scholarship and financial aid tool into its Literati services through a partnership with Reference Service Press. The company also launched a new Arabic interface, integrated Text to Speech functionality and added 53 new databases, including the Gale Virtual Reference Library, to its growing roster of library databases and collections that can be integrated into Credo Topic Pages, increasing discovery and usage of subscribing institutions' authoritative resources.
Credo also added to its own collection of foundational reference content with the launch of several new Subject Collections, including Nursing and Allied Health, African American Studies and Dentistry as well as Publisher Collections from Springer Publishing, Praeger, Berkshire Publishing, Princeton University Press and Perseus. Hunter Publishing is one of the new publishing partners who will make their authoritative content available through the company's Literati and Credo Online Reference Service solutions.
"This is an exciting time to be in the education technology and library industries, and we attribute our growth and success largely to the ongoing support and input from our subscribers and partners," said Mike Sweet, Credo's CEO. "The number of new partnerships and the recognition that we've received during this first quarter show that we are not alone in realizing that information skills are essential to academic, professional and personal success. We look forward to working with our new and future partners to make the skills gap a thing of the past."
A 2013 SIIA CODiE Award winner, Credo believes that everyone deserves the ability to learn and the opportunity to succeed.
