JSTOR, now with 35,000+ e-books!

jstorlarge

We’re pleased to announce that more than 35,000 e-books are now available through Falvey on the JSTOR platform. The Library is participating in a “demand driven acquisition” program with JSTOR, which means that all of their e-books are accessible to us and we purchase only the ones that get repeated use.

The collection includes books in all disciplines, but humanities and social science fields are particularly well represented. You’ll find a wealth of high quality scholarly sources in history, philosophy, religion, languages and literatures, sociology and political science.

Since the content is on JSTOR, you can search for book chapters at the same time as you search for journal articles and primary sources. To see only book results, click on the Books tab after entering your search:

Unlike other e-book platforms, there are no restrictions on downloading and printing JSTOR e-books. Read chapters online, or download PDFs to print or read later.

Currently these books can only be found by searching the JSTOR interface, but soon we’ll have records for each of them in the catalog, and chapters will appear individually in the library’s “Articles & more” search.

Titles are available from a large number of highly respected publishers, including:

· American Schools of Oriental Research
· Berghahn Books
· Boydell & Brewer
· Columbia University Press
· Cornell University Press
· Edinburgh University Press
· Fordham University Press
· Harvard University Press
· Liverpool University Press
· Manchester University Press
· Marcial Pons Ediciones de Historia S.A.
· MIT Press
· Oxbow Books
· Princeton University Press
· Purdue University Press
· Rutgers University Press
· University of California Press
· University of Massachusetts Press
· University of North Carolina Press
· University of Pennsylvania Press
· University of Virginia Press
· Yale University Press

Remember to access JSTOR through the library’s website in order to get access to these books, as well as other Falvey-only content.
