Catching Up with Credo – March 2021


The Credo Blog

Last month, Raymond Pun presented his takeaways from 2021’s ALA Virtual Midwinter and interviewed Ann Matsushima Chiu, Social Sciences Librarian at Reed College in Portland, OR, on using zines in library instruction and programming. Also, in honor of Black History Month, we considered how to integrate racial literacy into a library program as well as the impact the Harlem Renaissance had worldwide.

What’s New with Us?

Real Time Reference

March is Women’s History Month in America, and Credo has the facts about inspiring women, past and present. New to Credo this month, A to Z of Women: American Women in Sports and A to Z of Women: American Women Writers from Facts On File provide a thorough grounding on notable women from Abigail Adams to Kristi Yamaguchi.

The Conversation covers a broad range of women’s studies, from hidden women of history to Muslim women’s reflections on wearing the niqab, and from women’s health to women’s philanthropy.
