    Ulrichsweb: Video Tutorials

    • Product: Ulrichs

    Are there online tutorials available to learn about Ulrichsweb?

    We have created short (two- to eight-minute) video demonstrations of how to perform tasks within Ulrichsweb. (Longer training sessions are also available in our recorded webinar presentations.)
    The videos are available in two formats: WMV for Windows computers and MP4 for Mac and others. Click "WMV" or "MP4" to start the video. If it doesn't work, then right click on the link and then save the video to your computer.
    The videos are divided into three general areas; click a link here to jump to that area on this page:
    Video tutorials on other ProQuest Management and Discovery services (including Ulrich's Serials Analysis System -- USAS) are available here.

    Documentation for Ulrichweb can be found in the User Guide.
