Information Update - Fall 2012
Journal Archives Expanded with the Addition of JSTOR Arts & Sciences Collections?
- The Library has continued its expansion of its online journal archival collections with the recent additions of the JSTOR Arts & Sciences VIII, X, and XI Collections of journals. The collections will contain a minimum of 390 journal titles when completed by the end of 2014. The addition of these collections has enabled the Weinberg Library to consolidate its print journal collection while at the same time freeing up the entire space on the Library's first floor, thus paving the way for the creation of its future Learning Commons.
- At the same time, the collections have added depth and breadth to a number of disciplines including history, language & literature, art & art history, philosophy, sociology, business, history of science, and education to name just a few. The JSTOR Arts & Sciences Collection VIII contains a group of rare 19th and early 20th century American Art periodicals digitized as a special project with the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Frick Collection and the Brooklyn Museum of Art. A complete list of the titles in these collections can be found at the following URL: http://about.jstor.org/content-collections/journals.
