Polk replaces Oxford Reference with Credo


In an effort to improve its on-line reference tools, Polk Library recently replaced its Oxford Reference subscription with Credo Reference. Credo provides quick access to hundreds of highly regarded encyclopedias, dictionaries, thesauri and more, all from an easy-to-search interface. Of particular note are its extensive topic pages (over 16,000!): great for students looking for an overview on their topic before beginning their research.

Polk is confident that Credo will provide a better experience for most users with an easier search interface and an end to hits for materials for which Polk has no access.  This has been a perennial problem for some time.

Check out Credo at:


Despite this change, however, Polk STILL has direct access (via Search@UW) to many of Oxford reference titles, including but not limited to:

Oxford Classical Dictionary [4th edition]

The Oxford Dictionary of Byzantium

Oxford Dictionary of Political Quotations

Oxford Dictionary of the Middle Ages

Oxford Dictionary of the Renaissance

The Oxford Encyclopedia of American Literature

The Oxford Encyclopedia of Ancient Egypt

The Oxford Encyclopedia of Economic History

The Oxford Encyclopedia of Food and Drink in America [2nd ed.]

Oxford Encyclopedia of the Islamic World

The Oxford Encyclopedia of the Modern World

The Oxford Encyclopedia of the Reformation

The Oxford Encyclopedia of Theatre and Performance

The Oxford Encyclopedia of Women in World History

The Oxford International Encyclopedia of Peace
