Ancestry Library Edition is available by institutional subscription from ProQuest. It is a smaller version of the full Ancestry.com personal subscription collection, but it provides a robust subset of thousands of genealogical resource collections that your genealogy customers can use in their family history research.
This session will demonstrate the organization of the Library Edition database product, how to use the Card Catalog search feature to locate databases, and how to perform basic searches and wok with results. It will also demonstrate the use of basic and advanced types of searches, when to use Exact Match searches, and how to use wildcard searches. Search results and source citations will be shown. Ancestry.com’s Message Boards will be introduced and alternate record types will be discussed.
