New video tutorials available

Jonathan Blaney, 05 March 2011

Two new screencasts (video tutorials) are available on the site. They are very brief and are designed to help people get the most out of their use of British History Online.

We plan to add more screencasts in the coming months, introducing some key content of the site.

Please let us know what you think of the screencasts on the 'contact us' page.
