Library Research Tools Tutorial Videos

The following  10 tutorials were recorded over three evenings in Professor Anderson Clare's BC-498 Graduate Research and Writing course, in August/September 2019 using the Tegrity lecture capture system. That system was recently replaced with Panopto. Three Thomas Road library tour videos were filmed in the fall of 2017 and removed because the seminary library was rebuilt -- thus the tours no longer applied. We hope to someday record new tours of the Biblical Research Center and place them on line. As patrons, students, or faculty, if you need help with any of the tutorials please contact the library staff on email at or call us at 602-429-4971 (Doug Olbert)/4972 (Jim Santeford).

For help with Panopto, please see the Panopto section at PS Online Student Support.
