Focus on Resources: JSTOR
JSTOR is an interdisciplinary archive for the older content of selected academic journals. It contains retrospective material for more than 1,000 core scholarly journals across the social sciences, humanities, fine arts, and sciences. The journal coverage starts with volume 1 issue 1 and includes all previous titles. More recently published issues (the past three-to-five years) are generally not available as part of JSTOR.
For projects requiring a retrospective journal research, JSTOR can prove to be very useful. The entire full-text content is searchable and includes high quality PDF page images. The archives are being expanded to include other types of content such as pamphlets, manuscripts, and the older publications of scholarly societies. If any questions should arise in accessing and using this database please don't hesitate to visit the Reference Desk at the Legacy Library.
