Journal of Visualised Experiments (JoVE) now available from the Library

The Library has subscribed to the Journal of Visualised Experiments (JoVE). JoVE is a peer reviewed, PubMed-indexed journal devoted to the publication of biological, medical, chemical and physical research in a video format. JoVE films and edits videos of researchers performing new experimental techniques, allowing students and scientists to learn them much more quickly.

Find out more about JoVE at www.jove.com/.

The best way to access JoVE is through Library Search on the Library website www.imperial.ac.uk/library.

International Family Network at Imperial

Moving to an unfamiliar country and trying to balance study commitments with raising a family can be an isolating and difficult experience. If you’re an international student parent in this position, the good news is that you’re not alone!

We’ve created the International Family Network in order to bring international families together in a welcoming and informal environment. Our meet-ups allow you to socialise and share experiences/tips with others who may be going through many of the same situations as you. We meet up on a regular basis for coffee mornings and we recently held a picnic in the College’s Secret Garden for an afternoon of fun in the sun.

If you would like to be added to our mailing list and notified of any future events, please email Katie Leung with your CID number together with the number of dependants you have (and ages of any children).
