Research Toolkit: Stop Searching and Start Finding - Online Workshop

How to use these videos

These video tutorials are designed to help you better understand the fundamentals of searching subscription databases effectively and efficiently so that you can do better research faster.

This is a part of the Research Toolkit workshop series. While we are not able to incorporate the same level of active learning that we do in the traditional workshops, these videos are designed to replicate the in-person workshop as closely as possible.

This workshop has been divided into five parts. Each section is less than five minutes long.
If you are completing this workshop for class credit, please check with your instructor on whether this is available in your Pilot course. The videos below do not include the quiz for credit.

Part One - Understanding Databases

Part Two - Metadata

Part Three - Search Terms

Part Four - Putting Terms Together

Part Five - Refining Your Search
