Library Resources for your Brightspace Classroom: Search widgets

A smorgasbord of tasty items you can add to your Brightspace classroom to put the Library and all its great resources at the fingertips of your students.


Credo is full-text database of over 1,000 reference books, + images & video. It also offers a mini-discovery service (think SOLAR) that links out of the initial search results in Credo to our article databases. A great starter widget for first-year students to get them into the Library.
