The Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE) is the first peer-reviewed science video journal. The Library has started a limited access trial to JoVE’s Science Education Database which provides nearly 1,000 videos covering scientific fundamentals. Easy to understand video demonstrations on laboratory techniques, experiment design, introduction to concepts and theories, and more. Watch this short video to learn more.
For more info about JoVE and Leeward’s trial access, see last week’s blog post.

The Infobase World Religions database provides historical and contemporary coverage of major world religions and spiritual movements. World Religions is not a comprehensive religion resource. It offers access to concise articles on each religion, select primary source materials, sacred texts, music clips, and videos. Supplemental resources include images of religious art, architecture, and rituals; historical timelines; maps and graphs; and a calendar of religious holidays and observances.
Students can use World Religions as a gateway to exploring religion-related topics in a structured and unbiased manner, or as a resource for maps and images that can be used to provide a finishing touch on their research assignments.

The Library has initiated a 30 day trial for you to explore this platform. The trial expires on October 26th.
A username and password is required to access the trial account. You are free to test drive all the features in PrepSTEP but be aware that everything is shared and nothing will be saved once the trial ends.
IMPORTANT: The trial account is shared. DO NOT edit the user name or password at any time as this will make PrepSTEP inaccessible to the rest of the campus.
After you’ve had a chance to explore PrepSTEP, please take a few minutes to complete our feedback form. Your feedback will be considered in the Library’s resource acquisition decision-making process. Submit your feedback here.
