Metasearch & Federated Search

Federated search, or metasearch, is when a user enters a search term that goes out to several different databases; all those results then appear in the same place and users can navigate to them from there. 

Credo currently works with the following metasearch vendors:

More detailed information on the specifics of these relationships, including information on how to set up your Credo resources, is below. If you have questions or are using another metasearch service and would like to see Credo resources in your search results, please contact us!
