JoVE Database Trial

The Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE) is a peer-reviewed journal devoted to the publication of biological, medical, chemical and physical research in a video format. It was established in 2006 as a new tool in life science publication and
communication, with participation of scientists from leading research institutions. JoVE takes advantage of video technology to capture and transmit the multiple facets and intricacies of life science research. The journal is designed to facilitate the understanding and efficient reproduction of both basic and complex experimental techniques, so as to address two of the biggest challenges faced by today's life science research community: (a) the low transparency and poor reproducibility of biological experiments, and (b) the time and labor-intensive nature of learning new experimental techniques.

The Library in the Movies

Did you ever imagine the library has been a part of so many movies- helping to solve crimes, untangle secrets, provide refuge, entertain, get a date, and yes, even supply books with the assistance of a helpful librarian!

Think Different

Narrated by Steve Jobs in 1997, the "Think Different" commercial. Although it aired with Richard Dreyfus as the voiceover, I think Steve's is better. What an amazing impact he has had on the world.
