Database of Psychological Experiments

Through February 23 we have a trial subscription to Alexander Street Press'  database of psychological experiments.  This is an exciting and interesting database combining primary source material, video and other media to bring you a new understanding of some of the most important psychological experiments of this and the last century.   Here's their description of the database:

"Psychological Experiments Online is a multimedia online resource that synthesizes the most important psychological experiments of the 20th and 21st centuries, fostering deeper levels of understanding for students and scholars alike. The collection pairs 75 hours of audio and video recordings of the original experiments (when existent) with 40,000 pages of primary-source documents. It’s packed with exclusive and hard-to-find materials including notes from experiment participants, journal articles, books, field notes, letters penned by the lead psychologist, videos of modern-day replications, and modifications to the original experiments.
