New Online Resource: JSTOR

Over the last year the Library has received several requests for access to JSTOR, the scholarly archive of full-text journal articles in a variety of arts and humanities subjects. We are pleased to report that we have now subscribed to this resource, providing our students and staff with access to this invaluable resource.
JSTOR offers researchers the ability to retrieve high-resolution, scanned images of journal issues and pages as they were originally designed, printed, and illustrated. The journals archived in JSTOR span many disciplines. The Library now subscribes to Arts and Humanities Collections I, II and III. A list of titles included in these collections is available at http://www.jstor.org/about/collection.list.html
JSTOR is perfect if you want to access interdisciplinary articles online, from on-campus or from home. All you need is your Athens account, which can be requested at the Library Service Desk.
