Harvard Faculty Seminar Series There are over 50 videos available from the Harvard Faculty Seminar Series. Please note that these videos require Adobe Flash Player v10 or higher.
Additional search tips that apply to all databases: The more words you use, the less results you’ll see. Start general and add words to narrow down results. Change up your search terms! Using a variety of words can alter your results. For instance, all of the following will bring up a new set of results without changing the meaning: human resource management, personnel management, supervision of employees. Getting zero results? Check your spelling, that’s often the problem! Have you found a perfect article and want more like it? Look carefully for the terms that it uses and try a new search using those terms. You’re likely to have luck finding similar articles.
