New streaming service at NTU

NTU is now subscribing to Box of Broadcasts, fondly known as BoB.  You can now select your own TV and radio programmes to be streamed, which can then be shown on any PC with internet access.  I’ll continue to select programmes which I think are relevant to the courses I support, but you’ll need to search the BoB archives to find them as they’ll no longer be recorded onto DVD.  Find BoB in the Find Databases section of Library OneSearch.


Two new databases

Two new databases have been added to NTU Library’s collection.

PsycTESTS (one of EBSCO’s psychology databases) contains psychological tests and measures, including thousands of actual test instruments and test items that are available for immediate download and use in research and teaching. 

JISC MediaHub is a multimedia platform offering digital image, video and audio collections tailored for educational use. The platform offers access to free-at-the-point-of-use images, video and audio content licensed for educational and research.

Both databases are accessible on and off campus, through Library OneSearch.
