Featured General Reference Title of the Month

The Homer Encyclopedia, Wiley

The Homer Encyclopedia encompasses the world and artistry of Homer, the historical and cultural background of the Iliad and the Odyssey, Homeric scholarship, and Homeric reception from antiquity to the present. Entries include relevant personal and geographic names, as well as topics such as women, religion, meter, and paradigms. A great resource which provides coverage of both major themes for those starting their journey into the works of Homer, and person names mentioned only once in passing for the dedicated scholars.

Download MARC Records from Credo's Librarian Admin or WorldCat
Librarian Admin 

MARC records are available for all Credo Reference titles, including recently released titles, through your Librarian Admin. Please do download these records at your convenience.  
NOTE: If your library is currently trialing Credo's Publisher or Subject Collections, these titles will show up on your MARC Records download screen.  In this case, please contact Customer Support before downloading so that we might assist, or wait until your trial has ended before downloading records (  
Credo contributes MARC records to WorldCat as part of the Vendor Record Contribution Program.
Finding Credo records:
When a Credo Reference record (OCLC symbol CREDO) is added or matched in WorldCat, a 938 field is added to the MARC record that contains the vendor code CRED. This code is indexed -- vendor records are searchable in Connexion using the vendor index (Vendor (vn:) in the dropdown menu).
IMPORTANT NOTE: We've improved our MARC records! They now contain more metadata, including tables of contents, further subject headings, and more ISBNS (as well as other unique identifiers). It would be a great time to replace the Credo records in your catalog.

We will continue to work with our MARC vendor to fix the issue with two of our records, Political Corruption in America: An Encyclopedia of Scandals, Power & Greed and American Environmental Leaders: From Colonial Times to the Present.
