PsycEXTRA is a database of non-primary literature, such as conference proceedings, dissertations, and standards, on psychology news and research. The trials go on till June so take advantage of them while they last!

The library has just purchased online access to The Journal of Chemical Education, an important monthly publication published by the American Chemical Society. This peer-reviewed resource covers both secondary and university education, and includes articles such as “ChemPoker”, “JCE Classroom Activity #111: Redox Reactions in Three Representations”, and “Beer as a Teaching Aid in the Classroom and Laboratory”. Many of these articles are sponsored and can be accessed for free from your computers at home, however, anything that is not sponsored must be used on-campus for complete full-text access. Enjoy searching the full archive from 1924-current!
