GenderWatch is an invaluable resource for women's and gender studies courses, and it would be great to have a tutorial for this database. While the general information about the database is accurate, there have been some updates to the look and functionality of the site that make the tutorial more outdated than desired. There is a disclaimer that indicates that the tutorial had not been updated since 2002, so it should be clear to the user that all areas are not current.

Technical Remarks:

I had no problem navigating the tutorial
