How to use Databases

Got two minutes?  Learn how to use a database! Visit On the Road–Virtually! for 3 short videos on how to use these databases:

  • CultureGrams
  • The New York Times 1855-2005
  • SIRS Issues Researcher (Opposing Viewpoints)

As an extra bonus you can download and print out a quick start guide for each database.

There is also a video Why Databases – The Human Element (a little longer – 5 minutes) on why you should use a database instead of using a search engine on the Internet.

Videos can be found under the How-to Videos of On The Road–Virtually! Select How to Use Databases.
