2. Library Instructions Tutorials and CML videos

Rita Kohrman, Education Librarian, used her recent sabbatical to create useful videos containing Library Instructions Tutorials and information on the Curriculum Materials Library.  These tutorials are now uploaded onto the Library YouTube channel.  Below are the links directly to the each tutorial or video. You may also embed them into Blackboard by clicking the Share link then locating the Embed link found a little further down. There are transcripts available with each one but the students will have to turn it on to view.
