JSTOR E-Journal Archive Gets a Major Upgrade with Addition of the Arts and Sciences VII Collection

The Cheng Library is pleased to announce the addition of JSTOR's Arts and Sciences VII collection to its JSTOR archive of electronic journals. The Arts and Sciences VII collection contains over 180 titles across thirty-five disciplines, including anthropology, archaeology, art and art history, business and economics, Classical studies, health policy, history, language and literature, linguistics, philosophy, political science, sociology, and statistics. The collection builds on the strengths of the three JSTOR journal collections already acquired by the Library, adding over 100 titles not previously available at WPUNJ in any format.

As with the other JSTOR journal collections, the purpose of Arts and Sciences VII is to provide a permanent electronic archive of major journals rather than current issues. For most titles, issues are added to the collection on a regular schedule following a time lag of between one and ten years while current content is often available through other databases. With the addition of the Arts and Sciences VII collection, the Cheng Library's JSTOR archive now includes a total of 527 titles for which new content will be added each year.
