Many students today don’t know about keyboard shortcuts. This seems strange, and not just because using a mouse for everything is a recipe for repetitive strain injury. Keyboard shortcuts are the only way to do things like copying information from a WorldCat record to an ILL form.
So I’ve created a handout that is intended to be tacked up on a bulletin board or a wall for easy reference. It has universal shortcuts that will work in nearly any Windows program – like Ctrl + C to copy and Ctrl + V to paste – and a few that are specific to Word, like Ctrl + 2 to double space text and Ctrl + T to create a hanging indent.
