IEEE Offers Tutorials in Multiple Languages
New tutorials and transcripts expand IEEE training options for the IEEE Xplore digital library
10 January 2011—IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional association, has launched 11 tutorials in 7 languages as part of the organization’s online training and support program for the IEEE Xplore digital library. The self-paced tutorials are presented on the IEEE client services Web page as voice-narrated Flash videos with complete downloadable transcripts in the following languages: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish.
The focus of the tutorials is to highlight various features of IEEE Xplore, including the new search system which navigates more than two million technical documents currently found in the digital library. The goal of the tutorials is to help subscribers receive optimum results in less time. Topics of instruction include working with search results, advanced search capabilities, setting up content alerts, and personalizing the IEEE Xplore experience.
Other opportunities for users to advance their IEEE Xplore expertise are also found on the IEEE client services Web site, including a video demo, user guides in several languages, tips and tools, and links to the IEEE social media community sites for IEEE Xplore. In addition, large organizations may request a live, online tour of IEEE Xplore by an IEEE content specialist via the link below.
