A New Adventure: Publishing My First Video Tutorial

Well, I guess you are the first to know…On Granny’s Trail has gone “video.”  Today I published my first online video tutorial, titled, “Finding Libraries and Archives with WorldCat and ArchiveGrid.” I hope to provide a link to my tutorials here after I create a few more.

Probably won’t break any box office records and most certainly will not go viral (maybe I should have worn a Chewbacca mask!), but it was very satisfying to create and I think it will be the first of many.  I really like this platform for instruction and sharing and hope you will, too!

Here’s to new adventures and YouTube!
