JoVE, the Journal of Visualized Experiments
The Matas Library has just licensed two sections of the Science Education modules: General Laboratory Techniques and Basic Methods in Cellular and Molecular Biology. JoVE is a PubMed-indexed video journal. The database includes peer-reviewed scientific video protocols to accelerate biological, medical, chemical, and physical research.
 
Tulane University subscribes to the following sections of JoVE: General, Neuroscience, Immunology and Infection, Clinical and Translational Medicine, and Bioengineering.

Construction Concierge
Construction Concierge Desk
While workers are installing a fire suppression system (aka sprinklers) on each floor of the library, some areas of book shelves will be covered in plastic sheeting. Access to those stacks will be restricted to library staff only. This is for the safety of library users, construction workers, and of the books themselves.
 
Wherever you encounter books “under plastic” head to the main lobby of that floor to find the Construction Concierge Desk. A library staff member will be at the desk during peak hours between 10am and 6pm weekdays to retrieve books for you. Outside of those hours, ask for help at the Research Help Desk or Check-Out Desk on the first floor and we’ll be happy to assist you. You may also request an item online using these instructions.
Kanopy Yes, Kanopy Streaming Video is the latest greatest database Howie-T is bringing to a computer, or phone, or tablet, near you. Through Kanopy Streaming Video you have access to all 145 documentary films distributed by the Media Education Foundation. You can now watch documentary favorites like Killing Us Softly 4, Tough Guise, The Stuart Hall Project, White Like Me, and Consuming Kids (just to name a few) anywhere you have an internet connection.

We have a new database! Academic Charts Online is the latest addition to our 700+ strong collection of databases, this one coming to you courtesy of the Music & Media Center.
