Usage - I have not personally used this tutorial, but I have created tutorials discussing similar content.

Ease of Use - Found the tutorial very easy to navigate, instructions are simple and easy to follow.

Prior Use - As a former librarian I am very familiar with the topic area, both personally and professionally when using databases for research.

Accuracy of Content - Found this content to be accurate and reliable.

Technical Remarks:


Overall I found this to be a very good tutorial and useful for anyone desiring to understand the concept of Boolean searching / operators.

I would however redesign the tutorial with up-to-date screenshots, and replace the outdated graphics with more modern icons and pics.

Finally, a link to allow users to download a printed (pdf) version of the tutorial.
