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.

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

Update: As of June 30, 2019, Drake University no longer subscribes to Drake ITS offers a number of technology training resources for faculty & staff and for students.
