More streaming video – trials and new access!

You asked for it, we’re getting it! Many students, faculty, and staff members are asking for access to more streaming video, so the Middlebury Libraries are providing more and more of these options.

New for the sciences, from the Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE), we now have subscribed access to:

  • Science Education – 1 : a database of video instructions on General Laboratory Techniques, including the centrifuge, spectrophotometers, various aspects of microscopy, and more.
  • Science Education – 2 : video instructions focused on Basic Methods in Cellular and Molecular Biology, including gel electrophoresis, polymerase chain reaction, the Western Blot, and more.
  • JoVE Biology : a peer-reviewed journal of video protocols, procedures and methods.

For History, a trial through November 29th of American History in Video

Of general academic interest:

For the next thirty days, we can do a side-by-side comparison of the Criterion Collection from two different streaming platforms:

Please let us know your preference between these two options by emailing eaccess-admin@middlebury.edu or contacting your library liaison.

In addition, we are now set up for “a la carte” purchasing of any of the films Kanopy has at www.kanopystreaming.com. If you see a film there that you think would be interesting to all campus users, suggest a purchase by email.  Films we have purchased (or have trial access to) can be viewed at Middlebury’s own Kanopy site – http://middlebury.kanopystreaming.com

And don’t forget – Digitalia Film Library has films from around the world, as announced a couple of weeks ago.

A recipe to keep mites off your cheese, circa 1778

In the same year that Captain Cook sailed to Hawaii and Great Britain declared war on France, Helen Weldon started her recipe book in Bath, England on January 29, 1778. In addition to keeping mites off your cheese, she includes recipes for Mock Turtle (Calves head) soup, Onion Soop [sic] and raspberry vinegar “for those who want a pleasant cooler” in the summer. Remedies like Teeth Water, Poison for Rats & Mice, and Diuretic Balls for Horses are included too. Her handwritten notebook was acquired by Special Collections this summer. Learn more in our online catalog or by visiting Special Collections.
