The Penn Libraries have acquired the latest backfile offering from JSTOR, the scholarly journal online archive - JSTOR Arts & Sciences XI.
JSTOR XI will contain at least 125 titles by the end of 2014, with page-image display, searchable fulltext, and PDF output for every page of every issue from a journal's start up to JSTOR's traditional "moving wall" embargo, typically the most recent 3 to 5 years. Ten titles will show runs of more than 100 years, with the earliest issues dating from 1783.
The focus of JSTOR XI will be upon the humanities, with emphasis on language and literature, history, art and architecture, classical studies, and music. Other subjects covered will include bibliography and library science, religion, philosophy, archaeology, performing arts and film studies, as well as, American studies, Asian studies, Jewish studies, and African American studies.
