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.
