“We are delighted to expand our offerings through the Credo Reference service,” commented Donna Sanzone, VP & Director of New Product Development at M.E. Sharpe. “The first five titles we integrated in the Credo General Reference Collection were so well received that it made sense to expand our offerings to the Publisher and Subject Collections. Now libraries can choose the best way to provide their researchers with these exceptional resources.”

“M.E. Sharpe has a proven knack for coming up with excellent titles and content that resonates with today’s students and researchers in both the humanities and social sciences.” added John Dove, Credo President. “It is wonderful for Credo Reference to have the opportunity to bring a much broader set of M.E. Sharpe reference works to our market.”
