Thanks to a recent update, accessing the JoVE (Journal of Visualized Experiments) database is now much easier for CSN students. In the past, all users were required to create a separate JoVE account. Now, all CSN students have to do is sign in using your CSN student ID and Canvas password!

What is JoVE? JoVE is a database provided by the publisher of the same name that offers short videos about topics and experiments related to Biology, Chemistry, Neuroscience, and even how to use laboratory equipment. Each video includes narration and transcripts in 10 different languages for improved accessibility.
