JoVE Science Education – learn lab techniques through simple video demonstrations

joveOver a year and half since the Library first offered JoVE, the Journal of Visualized Experiments, we are pleased to announce that, following user recommendations from staff and researchers, we have recently subscribed to JoVE Science Education and JoVE Developmental Biology. These additions extend our provision to give Imperial staff and students access to the full suite of JoVE products.

JoVE is a peer reviewed scientific journal with over 4000 videos which are indexed in subject-relevant databases, including PubMed/MEDLINE, SciFinder and Scopus.

Videos from top research institutions around the world are included with many created by Imperial academics, for example A Method for Studying the Temperature Dependence of Dynamic Fracture and Fragmentation by David Jones, David Chapman and Daniel Eakins from the Institute of Shock Physics.

JoVE Science Education is particularly useful for helping undergraduates learn laboratory fundamentals through simple, easy to understand video demonstrations. It contains a number of collections including General Laboratory Techniques, Basic methods in Cellular and Molecular Biology, and Essentials of Biology. The collections are constantly growing and recent additions include Essentials of Genetics and Essentials of Cell Biology.

You can access JoVE directly at http://www.jove.com or via the link in the Library Search record where you will be asked to enter your College username and password if you are working off-site.
