Get ready for the fall semester with eHRAF video tutorials

It’s that time of year again when the fall semester is just around the corner. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with a few ways that you can get classroom- and research-ready with HRAF.

Video Tutorials

In addition to our existing eHRAF User Guide and help materials, we are happy to announce a new suite of video tutorials making their debut on YouTube this month.

Throughout July, we’re launching our updated how-to videos for using both eHRAF World Cultures and eHRAF Archaeology. These brief walkthroughs  – produced by Alissa Jordan – cover all aspects of navigating, searching and browsing the eHRAF databases, including citing and saving your search results. Because they follow along with the contents of our eHRAF User Guide and explain all the features and tools available in our databases, they also make a perfect companion for classroom instruction.

You can find all the sleek new videos in two handy playlists over on the HRAF YouTube page. Be sure to like and subscribe to be notified when additional videos are added.

Let us know if there’s a video you’d like to see us produce next!

Live e-seminars

For a more personalized and hands-on experience, Christiane Cunnar is back with her popular live, interactive training e-seminars for the eHRAF databases. If you haven’t yet taken advantage of this free resource, check out the latest schedule and sign up today. There are dedicated sessions for librarians, researchers, students and faculty.

Teaching eHRAF

Speaking of classrooms, have you seen our collection of ready-to-use teaching exercises? Produced in-house or submitted by our member faculty, Teaching eHRAF offers free syllabi that can be adapted and customized to suit your classroom needs. Stay tuned for another announcement coming soon with updates to Teaching eHRAF that will make browsing our collection of syllabi even quicker and easier. And, don’t forget that if you are a faculty member using eHRAF in your classroom, we’re always seeking to grow our collection of syllabi. We’d love to hear from you.

Media & Downloads

We have a number of media and marketing resources that can be used to promote our growing collection of products and services. These are ideal for library displays, to promote collection access, or for distribution among students and faculty during departmental events, open days, or library tours.
