Sage Research Methods: Video

SAGE Research Methods Video contains more than 125 hours of video, including tutorials, case study videos, expert interviews, and more, covering the entire research methods and statistics curriculum. The videos can help to bring methods to life: instead of reading about how to conduct a focus group, students can watch one in action. Stimulate class discussions by assigning videos for pre-class viewing, or use a clip in class to provide an alternative viewpoint. Videos can also be embedded into course management systems for exam preparation. Through these videos, 60% of which are exclusive to SAGE, students can find extra help and support to guide them through every step of their research project and succeed in their research methods course.

What are trial databases?

Trial databases give the IUP community an opportunity to preview a database. Positive feedback from students, faculty and staff will encourage the library to consider purchasing the database to make it a permanent part of the library holdings.

As such, these databases are not available for long periods of time! If you believe that a database will be essential to your studies and research, please make yourself heard by contacting Emily Szitas.
