Some of these have been made here. Most, though, come from other institutions that share! The sharing institution is always credited!

Introduction to OmniFile Video

The video below demonstrates searches in OmniFile, a database of articles from a variety of magazines and scholarly journals in all disciplines. It is delivered on the EBSCO platform. That same platform is used for many other subject specific databases, like APA PsycInfo, Business Source Complete, as well as another very broad, multidisciplinary database called Academic Search Complete. So, most of what is being taught here would help novice searchers of those databases as well.

Advanced Searching OmniFile (4:42)

Advanced Searching in OmniFile is slightly shorter in time (4:42) than the other here, but it has more details and moves at a brisk pace. It is a video from a powerpoint using children's exposure to violent videos as a topic.
