BOSTON and OXFORD, England, Feb. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Credo, the industry leader for information skills solutions, today announced that Literati Public was named a winner for the 2013 SIIA CODiE Awards for Best General Reference Service. Winners represent the information industry's best products, technologies and services created by or for media, publishers and information services providers.

The Literati solution includes a combination of authoritative reference content, technology that enhances discovery and connects learners with librarians and educators and customizable services that help promote digital and information literacy.

"Credo has been working closely with librarians, publishers, educators and technology partners to build a solution that addresses information skills and improves outcomes. These skills are critical to problem solving and critical thinking, which are necessary to achieving academic, professional and personal success," said Mike Sweet, Credo's CEO. "The SIIA CODiE Awards are the most esteemed in the software and information industry, and we share our CODiE with all of our customers and partners who helped to make Literati Public a winner."

For 13 years Credo has executed against a strategy that foundational reference content, interconnectivity with other library resources, and institution-specific customization options are core to helping libraries and other organizations effectively increase the information skills of their patrons. In addition to Literati Public, which has gained tremendous acceptance in the market including the entire state of Virginia, Credo offers information skills solutions to schools, academic institutions and student athlete programs.

"We are especially pleased with the high-caliber of this year's CODiE Award winners. The products selected as finalists stand as a testament to the dedication finalist companies have not only to meet, but also to exceed their customer and partner expectations," noted SIIA Vice President for the Content Division, Kathy Greenler Sexton.
