  • Subscription databases are NOT the same as websites. Some non-sub databases, too, as those provided by libraries and other academic institutions.
    They know what's in each item (that CLIO only knows we have). Connected with e-link.
    Listings by genre/format
    A to Z, vs. subject lists
    Pair searches: choose a text and a type of research if it seems like there's time
    Ten minutes for breakouts/twenty for show and tell
