RefWorks YouTube Tutorials                RefWorks Training Webinars

EBSCO provides many short YouTube tutorials that you can view at your convenience. If you are new to using the EBSCO interface you may want to view the Introduction to EBSCOhost Tutorial and the EBSCOhost Advanced Search - Guided Style Find Fields Tutorial first.

APA PsycNET, APA's platform for searching its various databases, also provides a large number of YouTube tutorials. For new users we recommend viewing  APA Databases on APA PsycNET, which consists of a group of 47 short videos demonstrating  various search strategies using the PsycNET interface.  You can view them all or just the ones that cover the information you need.  If you are an old hand at using PsycNET, you may want to view the tutorial on the Library's most recent addition to its group of APA databases, PsycTESTS.
