Over the summer, the Library began a subscription to an exciting new resource called JoVE: the Journal of Visualized Experiments. JoVE is a ‘video journal’ that combines written articles with streaming videos demonstrating research methodologies and laboratory techniques in different science disciplines. The purpose behind JoVE is to improve research outcomes and student education by letting users both read about and watch how a technique is performed.
JoVE is currently comprised of two main sections: the original Video Journal and a newer section called Science Education. The Video Journal originated in 2006 and features peer-reviewed video articles in which researchers demonstrate novel research techniques and new applications of existing methods. The Science Education portion is focused on teaching students fundamental laboratory techniques and discipline-specific methodologies.
Our subscription provides access to the following six sections of JoVE:
- Biochemistry video journal
- Biology video journal
- Neuroscience video journal
- Basic Biology science education
- Advanced Biology science education
- Chemistry science education
LIT will be hosting a Lunch & Learn about JoVE and other streaming video platforms on Friday, September 13 to demonstrate the features of this new resource. In the meantime, please feel free to explore this new resource and contact the Library with any questions you may have.
