Training Presentation Notes

Training presentation notes
These notes are intended to be used as a guide for a trainer running an approximately 30-minute face-to-face training session. Ideally, participants should have access to their own computer, and should be given time to explore the resource for themselves as well as trying out the searches suggested by the trainer. The notes are given in a very brief style and are intended to highlight the main features and functionality of each resource. Of course, the example searches given only show a tiny percentage of the available content, so please feel free to download them and adapt them for your own needs.
