Tip of the Week: A year's worth of tips

So, this week we will have finished a full year of our “Tips of the Week” series. Every Wednesday we post a short 3-5 minute movie of a tip on how to use a resource or database. We’ve done one year’s worth! So, for the end of this year, we are going to list them here for you. This week we’ll list the first 6 months worth of tips, next week we’ll go over the next 6 months.
