Make Me a Super Searcher

Shane MulcahyShane Mulcahy, a JSC music education major and library student assistant, has recorded several videos detailing the research process.  These brief tutorials show you the nuts and bolts of using the library's catalog and databases and will save you valuable time when you begin your projects.
