Credo Reference: Basic Search Box

Credo Logo

Credo is an easy-to-use tool for starting research. Use this box to search hundreds of full-text reference titles, as well as 500,000+ images and audio files and over 1,000 videos.


Just type in your search term in the search boxes on this page to see what writing-related information you find!

Notice that the CREDO Reference contains information from a variety of sources.  For example, when you enter the search term "onomatopoeia" in CREDO, articles from several different publications appear, such as Good Word Guide, The Columbia Encyclopedia, and The Macquarie Dictionary

A citation for one of these articles would include both the name of the database used to access the article and the title of the publication actually responsible for the article.
