Lights! Camera! Action! Video Tutorials from Touro Libraries

In her book, Thinking in Pictures: And Other Reports from my Life with Austism, Temple Grandin describes the different learning style she experiences as a result of her autism.  Unlike most people who fully understand language, Dr. Grandin “translates” words into visual images that play in her head like a movie. (See the movie!)   

I understand there are many learning styles.  I’ve never met a film I could forget, or a page of text I could remember.  Maybe you are the same.  If so, Touro Libraries has a solution for you.

Our Library Team has created unique video content to explain how to be an effective information seeker in the Touro environment.  You can find these video tutorials conveniently collected in a LibGuide. Or, better yet, see a few of our favorites neatly listed below:

What Can Touro Libraries Do for You

How to Find eBooks

Google Search Tips

The aforementioned videos are narrated by some of our lesser seen and infrequently heard Library staff, so you are in for a treat.  These videos are superior learning tools for the Touro student as they are specific to our institution; they show screenshots of our website and demonstrate our resources.  What more could you want?  They are also perfect to refresh your recollection of material you missed in that early morning library orientation, when you were bleary-eyed and near comatose from the night before.  (You know I’m taking about you, Sammy!)  So do yourself a favor, sit back and relax, and watch a tiny little movie that could change your life.

    Great! I like when you wrote “I’ve never met a film I could forget, or a page of text I could remember”!
