The Library Committee is pleased to announce that it has subscribed to Project Muse’s Humanities Collection and has made available a couple of additional Jstor collections.
Project MUSE is an important provider of digital humanities and social sciences content from leading university presses and scholarly societies. Since 1995, its electronic journal collections have supported a wide array of research needs at academic, public, special, and school libraries worldwide.
Project Muse’s Humanities Collection comprises a substantial number of peer reviewed journals of leading university presses.
Jstor is an archive of top academic journals and e-books in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences.
Jstor only offers back issues; depending on the journal, the newest publication that is offered is 2 to 5 years old.
The Jstor collections Biological Sciences, Business & Economics, and Mathematics & Statistics were already available; recently, the following Jstor collections have been added:
- Arts & Sciences III, V and VIII (across the language, performing, visual arts, and Eastern and Western religions; literary reviews and historical titles; rare 19th- and early 20th-century American art periodicals)
- Language & Literature (the literary cultures of many countries; developed with the Modern Language Association)
