New trials of online video databases

JCU Library is trialling two new video databases. No logins are required while using these databases on campus, however off campus users will be asked to authenticate with their jc username and password. Both databases are also available via the trial of online services webpage.

JCU Library can not guarantee access to these databases after the trial period. However heavy use between now and 3 October will support the case for including them in the JCU Library online collection.  Consequently, we encourage you to take advantage of these databases and to tell your friends!

Sports Medicine and Exercise Science in Video (on trial until 3rd October 2012)
This database provides an extensive video collection covering areas of fitness and health assessment, disease management, injury treatment, nutrition, medical fitness, sport science, work-site wellness, exercise adherence, and much more. The collection features an array of internationally renowned physicians, exercise scientists, certified athletic trainers, physical therapists, registered dietitians, sport psychologists, personal trainers, and health/wellness experts who share information, ideas, and insights on the principles, techniques, and modalities of modern exercise science and sports medicine.

Video Journal of Counseling and Therapy (on trial until 3rd October 2012)
This database provides a collection of video available for the study of counseling, social work, psychotherapy, psychology, and psychiatric counseling. The wealth of video and multiplicity of perspectives in these collections allow students and scholars to see, experience, and study counseling in ways never before possible. It also complements popular JCU Library subscribed databases Counseling and Therapy in Video, vols 1 and 2.
