What You Need to Know about Microsoft Word for the Mac
This handout will help you with the most commonly used Word commands. It is written for Word 2008, the word processing software that we run on the Macs here at the Liverpool Public Library. If you have a later version of Word, or one of the Windows versions, things may look a little different and you might have to hunt around a little, but the basic concepts will still be the same.
You will find more quick reference guides for Microsoft Word on our Explore A Topic Computer Tutorials page.

But when I saw some of the things it could do, I changed my mind fast. I’d like to share some of these things with you.

Borrowing OverDrive eBooks and Audiobooks on NOOKs and Other Android Devices
Updated February 2014: This handout is for people who have NOOK tablet devices such as the NOOK Color or the NOOK HD, or other devices that run the Android operating system such as the Google Nexus. In fact, this can even be used with the Kindle Fire family of devices, since they run Android too. We have a collection of both eBooks and audiobooks available through the OverDrive service; these can be downloaded directly to your device without even connecting to a computer.
