Get the Most out of Limiters and Expanders:
Google (keyword) searching is fine, but what about all those available search options? Limiters like Cover Story, PDF and Language often get overlooked – expanders, too! We'll discuss how these can quickly help users retrieve the results they are looking for!

How Do Those Subject Files Really Work?
There are subjects and then there are subjects. In this micro session, we'll demonstrate how to use both the Subject authority file and the Subject index. We'll also discuss the difference between Subject headings and Thesaurus: Subject headings where available.

Quick Ways to Access Publications and Journals:
Want to get your hands on a periodical or journal fast? There are a few ways you might not have thought of before – and we'll share them in this micro session. We'll also discuss ways to promote specific journals by putting links on your library page to give easy access to your patrons – and increase usage!

Save Time with Search and Journal Alerts:
Alerts are great benefits of having a personal MyEBSCOhost account. Learn how to quickly create journal alerts so users know when their favorite magazine is available online. Search alerts help researchers save time by notifying them when new articles that match their search criteria have been downloaded and are ready to view.
