New JSTOR Arts & Sciences Databases

JSTOR was founded in 1995 for the purpose of providing “trusted digital archives for scholarship.” Axe Library has had the JSTOR Arts & Sciences I database for several years now. The Library has recently acquired two more JSTOR databases, JSTOR Arts & Sciences II and III, for use by students and faculty.

JSTOR Arts & Sciences II contains 124 titles, covering subjects such as history, economics, archaeology, classics, and Asian, African, Latin American, Middle Eastern, and Slavic studies, among other areas. JSTOR Arts & Sciences III contains 150 titles, including journals in languages and literature, music, film studies, folklore, performing arts, religion, architecture, art, and art history. To see a list of journals now available to you from JSTOR, access JSTOR by clicking on “Databases by Title” on the Library’s home page.

As with all of Axe Library online journals, you may access the journal content through Serials Solutions by going to the Axe Library home page and clicking on “Serials Solutions”. You may search for a specific journal title, title words, or browse by subject. Alternatively, you may search the Library’s online catalog by journal title or subject. In addition, if you are searching another database and find a JSTOR article that you would like to access, click on Article Linker and then click on Article. Article Linker brings together all of the Library’s journal resources in one place, making it easier to find needed articles without having to do a second search of the online catalog.

If you are off-campus or using a laptop with wireless access, you will be prompted for your GUS ID and PIN when accessing JSTOR.

If you have any questions or comments regarding any of Axe Library’s journals or databases, please do not hesitate to contact the Library at ext. 4884 or 4894.
