Searching—Locate video programs and clips that meet you needs
One of the most helpful and powerful features is the search engine. There are several ways to perform
a search.

        search


Search Results--Understanding and using the results of your search
All results will appear on the right side of screen, sorted in order of relevance by default. You can
change it to other options using the drop down (title, grade level, and publisher)
          Programs in SAFARI are divided into chapters and key concepts
          Click the program’s title to see the key concepts and the chapters
          Click the green play button and preview the video clip. You can also view it full screen at any
          time
Search Subjects—Search for video based on pre-selected subject headings.
        Click the SUBJECTS button on the navigation bar.
        Titles are organized by subject matter.
        Subject headings are carefully chosen by a team of
        educators.
        Blue arrow icons indicate that there are more video
        clips on that subject area.

            via a submenu.
        o As each submenu opens, you are narrowing your
