Say what?! JoVE or the Journal of Visualized Experience is, in my opinion, one of the coolest electronic databases we have on campus. It is the world’s first peer reviewed scientific video journal. Yes, VIDEO JOURNAL! And yes, peer reviewed, which means that the content is a trustworthy source of information.
You know that expression “learning by doing?” Well, this is as close as you can get using one of our electronic resources. Watch an experiment actually take place instead of just reading some heavy text based article. This format also makes it easier to reproduce work for your own research and learning.
The collection includes over two thousand video demonstrations and experiments with more than fifty added each month. Topics include studies in bioengineering, applied physics and more!
JoVE can be found on the library webpage (library.olin.edu) in the e-resources list. Watch and learn!
