New JSTOR database added

We can now offer access to the JSTOR Religion and Theology Collection, a database of full-text scholarly journals in a range of religious studies subject areas.  This resource is available to everyone within the Library or on our three campuses (Richmond, Charlotte and BTSR), and remotely to current students, faculty and staff with your account login.

When you search in our Library catalog, you will now get materials from JSTOR appearing on the tab labeled Database Results.  Also, you can search using their own interface by clicking on the JSTOR link on our Online Databases page.

JSTOR is an archived digital collection that provides all issues of each journal, from volume 1 number 1, including all previous and related titles, up to a “moving wall” (usually a 2-5 year embargo).  So it’s not as useful for current articles as some of our other resources, but has exceptional depth of coverage.

If you have any questions about its use, please feel free to contact Paula Skreslet, Ryan Douthat or Christopher Richardson.
