We at the University of Maryland have developed a flash tutorial for Metalib to help our patrons understand some of the complexities of this system. We used software called “Captivate” which is fairly inexpensive and has a 30 day trial available! The tutorial covers most of the features of Metalib and SFX. Notable exclusions include loging in and “My Metalib”. It was meant to be a “basic” tutorial. It’s running time is approx 7minutes, but they are so action packed it will seem more like 3.
