JStor and Project Muse are two fundamental tools able to provide full-text articles taken from the most important academic periodicals.
Project MUSE (Humanities Collection) began in 1995 as a pioneering joint project of the Johns Hopkins University Press and the Milton S. Eisenhower Library (MSEL) at JHU. It provides 100% full-text, affordable and user-friendly online access to a comprehensive selection of prestigious humanities and social sciences journals. MUSE’s online journal collections support a diverse array of research needs at academic, public, special and school libraries worldwide.
The CSA Library subscribes the Humanities Collection, that provides a highly relevant set of research journals for art schools, museums, performing arts organizations, film schools, and related institutions. Of the new titles added to MUSE each year, the best of those with a clear humanities focus are added to the Humanities Collection.
Originally conceived as a project at The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, JSTOR (Arts&Sciences I, Language&Literature Collections, and Jewish Studies) is an electronic journal collection consisting of the full text of back issues of journals in many different subject areas, current to within 2 to 5 years.
JSTOR offers a high-quality, interdisciplinary archive to support scholarship and teaching. It includes archives of over one thousand leading academic journals across the humanities and social sciences, as well as select monographs and other materials valuable for academic work. The entire corpus is full-text searchable, offers search term highlighting, includes high-quality images, and is interlinked by millions of citations and references.
