ALA Past-President Molly Raphael Joins Credo Advisory Board

Brings extensive experience that supports Credo's mission
Credo, the industry leader for information skills solutions, recently announced that Molly Raphael, past-president of the American Library Association, has joined the company's corporate advisory board.
Credo's advisory board is comprised of significant Library and education industry experts who are tapped by Credo throughout the year for consulting on a variety of issues central to fulfilling the company's goal to be the world's leading provider of information skills-building solutions.
"Credo sees itself as not only working for libraries, but working with libraries to innovate the industry," said Mike Sweet, Credo CEO. "This is evident in our work with publishers to provide authoritative reference content on our user-friendly Literati platforms as well as in our work with technology companies to provide cutting-edge services. Most importantly, it's evident at the very conception of our products as we work with experts and librarians like Ms. Raphael to develop solutions that meet the needs of learners of all types."
Molly Raphael is a much-decorated public librarian. Her work has focused on collections, programming and increasing diversity in library employment, for which she awarded the Arthur Flemming Civil Rights award in 2009. In 2006 she was recognized by Simmons College, which awarded her their 2006 Alumni Achievement Award.
