JStor has arrived!

By utilizing cost-effective measures, the Library has been able to acquire the entire collection of the electronic database JStor.

JSTOR offers a high-quality, interdisciplinary archive to support scholarship and teaching. It includes archives of over one thousand leading academic journals across the humanities, social sciences, and sciences, as well as select monographs and other materials valuable for academic work. The entire corpus is full-text searchable, offers search term highlighting, includes high-quality images, and is interlinked by millions of citations and references. Academic journals comprise the majority of the content in the archive. Journals are always included from volume 1, issue 1 and include previous and related titles. The most recently published issues (past 3-5 years) are not available. Please read about the Moving Wall and Links to Recent Content for more information.
  • JSTOR includes 1,856,206 full-length articles across 47 disciplines.
  • There are 1,387,437 book reviews in JSTOR.
  • The oldest content in the JSTOR archive was published in 1665.
  • JSTOR is active in Facebook.
