New JSTOR Content Available at Muhlenberg

JSTOR content available to College faculty, staff, and students has just increased dramatically, thanks to careful budgeting by our library’s Collection Development team.

Muhlenberg has for several years been able to access a significant number of the most important JSTOR collections in the arts & sciences. New this year to Muhlenberg are the following JSTOR collections:

Arts and Sciences X

With a minimum of 125 titles available by the end of 2013, the Arts & Sciences X Archive Collection features broad coverage in Business and the Social Sciences. Sociology, Education, Public Policy & Administration, and the History of Science, Technology, and Medicine are all represented in this collection, and titles that are cross-listed in the Business III Collection contribute scholarship in the fields of Business, Economics, and Finance. The Arts & Sciences X Archive and Current Collections also include titles from new JSTOR disciplines, such as Transportation Studies and Development Studies. The titles included in the Arts & Sciences X Collection will serve researchers, scholars, and professionals in disciplines that rely on science and social science theory, data, and analysis to support their work in the field.

Arts and Sciences XI

Arts & Sciences XI will expand JSTOR’s coverage in the humanities, with scholarship in core fields of Language & Literature, History, and Art & Art History. Comprising a minimum of 125 titles, the collection will include important journals in Classical Studies, Architecture & Architectural History, and Music. Other discipline clusters will include Bibliography, Library Science, Religion, Philosophy, Archaeology, Performing Arts, Film Studies, and Linguistics. Interdisciplinary titles will broaden the scope of the collection to include area studies such as American studies, Asian studies, Jewish studies, and African American studies.

Jewish Studies

The Jewish Studies Archive Collection features journals that cover a unique range of historical and regional aspects of Jewish Studies. Comprising a minimum of 50 titles at completion, this collection includes published content dating back to 1889, as well as titles in English, German, French, Dutch, Italian, and Hebrew. This collection includes key publications of the Association for Jewish Studies, Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary, Hebrew Union College, Rabbinical Council of America, and the National Association of Professors of Hebrew. A number of titles with historical depth are also featured, including the oldest English-language journal in the field of Jewish Studies.
