Online Tutorials and Handouts to OvidSP From Other Libraries

Dean Giustini lists what he believes are the top five pros and cons to OvidSP and also directs us to a tutorial on the new interface from Yale Medical Library.
Currently many libraries are just linking to Ovid's documentation and tutorials, but there are a few libraries who have already created their own documentation and tutorials. For those of you interested in what others are teaching, you might want to check out the following sites.
