Question: I'm applying for a job and I need to be proficient in Microsoft Office products. Does the library have anything that can help?


Drake University subscribes to, which offers thousands of videos and online tutorials for a variety of software. To access, log in to myDrake ( and click on the link in the Learning Resources area. You will need to create a free account, after which you can search for specific Office products. Filters for skill level and video duration are particularly helpful for identifying those videos that will be most useful to you. Update: As of June 30, 2019, Drake University no longer subscribes to Drake ITS offers a number of other technology training resources for faculty & staff and for students.

Also, if you have a public library account within the state of Iowa, you can access LearningExpress Library: LearningExpress Library offers self-tests in many different areas and includes some resources for Microsoft Office.

Finally, the library has quite a few books and e-books that can help with building Microsoft Office skills.
