New e-Resource - complete JSTOR Collection now available

We now have access to the complete JSTOR database - the three remaining JSTOR full-text e-journal collections have recently been subscribed to.

JSTOR (Journal STORage) archives over 2,000 leading digitised scholarly journals in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences, from volume 1 onward, in order to support scholarship and teaching.

Most journals have a 3-5 year moving wall between the content in JSTOR and the current published issue, designed to protect the revenue publishers make from the sales of current issues.

The three additional collections are:
predominantly social sciences titles, with the focus on economics, education, linguistics, political science, and area studies. 
mainly core humanities titles, focusing on art and art history, classical studies, education, history, language and literature, and music. Some rare 19th and early 20th century American Art periodicals are included.
this widens JSTOR’s coverage in business and the social sciences, with titles in archaeology, anthropology, business, economics, political science, population studies, and sociology. 

Off-campus access:  use your University Username and Password

NB: the individual journals in these collections are being added to SAULCAT and the E-Journal web pages, and will appear there, very soon.  The titles for our existing collections are already in SAULCAT, etc.
