This message provides examples of internet based guides to the searching platforms and the database search structure found in the search tools of various databanks (companies that lease or sell access to bibliographic databases).
Libraries pay a huge sum of money to purchase databases. It would make sense to use guides to teach database skills or point students to sources that teach them. Proquest, for example, provides a number of Libguides that are free on the web and teach some skills and techniques that are promoted for getting the best results from their databases. In your guides, appropriate Proquest Libguide(s) may be listed under the entries for Proquest databases.
Resources teaching the syntax, structure, and instruction in best practices for searching databases from Google, EbscoHost, Proquest, Ovid and PubMed are included in this Webliography.
