Art-related Database Tutorials

The following are tutorials for key databases for art research: 

JSTOR (4:04) - JSTOR is an archival database, with most articles being 5 years old or older, but this is not a problem for philosophy. JSTOR covers the very best philosophical journals.

Academic Search Complete (3:26) Note that the video is for another version of Academic Search entitled "ultimate," though the search features are the same in "Complete."
