New electronic JSTOR collections at the Monroe Library

During the summer of 2012, the Monroe Library was able to add six JSTOR electronic journal collections to the five we already had.

The collections are JSTOR Arts & Sciences V through X (five through ten).  Here is some brief info on each of the collections:

  • Arts & Sciences V has many literary reviews, state historical journals, and specializes in the arts and humanities. There are 120 titles in 22 disciplines.
  • Arts & Sciences VI is strong in social sciences, with 120 titles in over 30 disciplines.
  • Arts & Sciences VII includes an eclectic range of disciplines in the arts, humanities, and social sciences and the largest cluster of health policy titles in JSTOR.  It has 183 titles in 35 disciplines.
  • Arts & Sciences VIII specializes in the core humanities disciplines: history, language & literature, art & art history, and education. It includes 19th and early 20th century American Art periodicals from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Frick Collection, and the Brooklyn Museum of Art.  There are also journals in philosophy, classical studies, and music.  Contains 140 titles in over 10 disciplines.
  • Arts & Sciences IX is incomplete. It will hold a minimum of 150 titles by the end of 2012.  The collection widens coverage in business and the social sciences: archaeology, anthropology, sociology, business, economics, population studies, and political science.   
  • Arts & Sciences X is also incomplete. There will be a minimum of 125 titles by the end of 2013, with broad coverage in business and the social sciences: sociology, education, public policy & administration, and the history of science, technology, and medicine, and business, economics, and finance. Also new JSTOR disciplines, such as transportation studies and development studies.  

Remember JSTOR Arts & Sciences has the beginning of each journal to three, four or five years ago and not current issues.  The total is 838 titles.  More information is available at http://about.jstor.org/content-collections/journals.
