Have You Used JSTOR Recently?

JSTOR, the database that provides searchable full-text historical runs of important scholarly journals in the humanities, arts, sciences, ecology, and business, has updated its interface and site navigation this past year. Now it’s more easily navigatable and more compatible with other databases. The Advanced Search function now allows searching by familiar categories—full-text, author, title, etc. When viewing articles your keywords are highlighted in yellow and you can readily navigate to pages where your search terms appear. Of particular interest are the links to “Articles Citing this Article,” “Articles by [author],” and “Related Articles” within JSTOR and via Google Scholar. These links can lead you to a broader literature on a particular subject area. Happy searching!
