Categories: Midd Blogosphere

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.

Do you have other library recommendations? Let us know! or contact your liaison.
