Adding your proxy

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 http://search.credoreference.com link in the fourth or fifth line of the code.

The unproxied Credo URL from the Health & Medicine search box:

value="http://search.credoreference.com/search/advanced?include={0}&subjects=112&sort=relevance"/>

EZ Proxy example:

value="http://yourlib.ezproxy.com/login?url=http://search.credoreference.com/search/advanced?include={0}&subjects=112&sort=relevance"

WAM Proxy example:

value="http://0-search.credoreference.com.yourproxy.edu/search/advanced?include={0}&subjects=112&sort=relevance"

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 support@credoreference.com for help in modifying the code.

Credo Reference: Basic Search Box with Library Card Authentication (sample)

If your patrons use their library cards for remote Credo access, this box format will let them skip the “Where are you from?” stage of authentication, and get right to the search results page after entering their library card barcode.

To use this box, you'll need your "Credo client ID", which can be requested from support@credoreference.com. Insert this value into the code where you see the ****, or just ask us for help!

Search Widget

This widget can be used to combine searching Credo with other resources. To be included, the other resources must support permanent links to the search results page. To find the link, run a search in the resource, copy the URL from the address bar or permalink button, and replace your search term in this permalink with {0}.You can also find these search links in your Credo Admin account, if we've set them up for you.

To use this widget, simply copy it into your guides, click "Edit Media/Widget code," and insert the Search URL and resource title in the "Option" lines. You can add as many resources as you wish, by adding more "Option" lines. You can also add your proxy prefix to the front of each link to incorporate proxy access. Let us know if you need any help!
