Credo In Action: The Mind Map

Posted by Credo on 7/13/17 11:36 AM

Early last year we relaunched our Mind Map visual search tool, and the feedback we’ve received from subscribers has been great.

Mary Timmons of Monroe Community College says, “I love the Mind Map - it gives students who just have an idea for a topic a way to focus and narrow the search to give better, and easier, research material that concentrates on what they want to do.” Here are some other stories from librarians about where and how they use this popular feature:

Credo in Action: Faculty Collaboration

Posted by Credo on 6/19/17 2:12 PM

One of the most common concerns we hear from librarians regards how difficult it can be to engage with faculty. This was a distinct takeaway from our booth survey at ACRL, and is something we explored in one of our most popular webinars of last year.

Posted by Credo on 6/13/17 11:23 AM

We recently asked librarians to send us their stories of how they put Credo to use helping students. Sol Lopez of Regis University won our contest, and a trip to ALA Chicago, for her submission on how Credo supports her school's first year experience (FYE) program by encouraging students to initiate choosing topics for their research.
