Place a Credo Search Box right on your library's LibGuides! These boxes are designed for the Credo Online Reference Service platform. They'll search any subject-specific content in your account, including Core Collections and Essentials Collections. If you have any questions about which boxes to use, just submit a support request for help.
To reuse any of these boxes, simply copy this complete guide into your own LibGuides (Learn how to copy a LibGuide here - LibApps sign-in required). Please note that you must be using LibGuides v2 in order to copy our guides. Leave it unpublished, and you can import the appropriate Credo Search Box into your LibGuides using the Add New Box > Reuse an Existing Box function in your admin view.
To add your proxy, see the informational box at the bottom of this page for instructions, or submit a support request for help. The descriptive text at the bottom can be edited as you wish or simply deleted from the box - just make sure to leave all of the code intact.
If you prefer the Credo results page to open in the same tab/window, simply replace "_blank" in the last few lines of the code with "_self", or submit a support request for help.
If your remote users access through a proxy, copy this LibGuide into your guides, find the box you'd like to proxy, and click "Edit Media/Widget code." Then, add your proxy information to the https://search.credoreference.com link in the fourth or fifth line of the code.

Make sure to keep the quotation marks at the beginning and end of the URL, but remove them from between the proxy prefix and the Credo URL. Please note that if you're working with the beta guides, the quotation marks might be encoded to " instead, but you can treat them the same way. If you have any issues, please contact email@example.com for help in modifying the code.
