Environmental Research Across Disciplines : Videos and Video Lectures

This guide is for library resources and research in Environmental Science

Videos and Video Lectures

Videos at Snell Library.  Videos(streaming, DVD, and VHS) owned by Snell Library are listed in Scholar OneSearch, the library catalog and discovery system. 

A keyword search on the term "environment" retrieves over 11,000 records.  By limiting those results to "Video, Music, and Sound," the results are reduced to aroung 150 records.  Those records with an "earth" icon may be accessed and watched from the NuCat record. 

Videos and Video Lectures on the Web.  Videos on topics related to Environmental Studies may be found among the following web collections:

  • Academic Earth (organization)  Video lectures from major scholars in a variety of disciplines
  • Nature (PBS) Streaming videos, each covering an aspect of nature and the human impact upon it.
  • Nova (PBS).  Streaming videos on a wide range of topics, including environmental issues.
  • Science Nation (National Science Foundation).  Streaming videos on a variety of science topics.

Featured resource: JoVE

JoVE (Journal of Visualized Experiments) is a science video resource that includes a variety of resources for use in the classroom and in the lab. It has two components:

  1. Science Education Video CollectionTeaching-focused videos including concept animations, ‘scientist in action’ videos to see concepts applied, and lab manual videos that cover preparation procedures for common labs
  2. Video JournalA peer-reviewed video methods journal, consisting of video demonstrations and detailed text protocols of new and standard methods in physical and life sciences. Students and researchers can see the details of experiments and concepts, in addition to text-based descriptions.

Below are a few links to components of JoVE relevant for Biology:
