The Cheng Library's recent purchase of 37 new reference titles on the Credo Reference platform brings our online full-text reference collection to over 1,030 titles from 125 major publishers, just in time for a new semester and new research products. Our customized collection is built to focus on the majors and programs offered at WPUNJ, and it offers one of the best starting points for research projects in any subject area.
The collection, which is easy to search and browse, features specialized encyclopedias, subject and biographical dictionaries, directories, handbooks and guidebooks, almanacs and chronologies, statistical sources, atlases, primary source collections, and other resources covering every field of study offered at the University.
Most of the titles in Credo Reference are written by subject experts to provide concise and up-to-date overviews of topics, providing great introductions and research starters. Students can use Credo Reference to explore possible research topics, get oriented to the major questions and findings, pick up useful search terms for use in other databases, and obtain book and article recommendations for moving on to the next stage of a project.
