The two tutorials below should be watched in order: Keywords first, then Databases. Please contact your W231 course instructor if you have questions about the assignments given in these tutorials. Please contact me (the librarian) if you are having trouble coming up with appropriate keywords or have questions about using the databases or other library resources.

Also, you can use the Closed Captioning option on these videos if you would like to read along with the tutorial narration. When you click play, a small box with 'CC' will appear below the time elapse slide. Click it to activate the subtitles.
