Library Brings JSTOR™ to LBCC

Libraries worldwide are making a transition from print to digital collections of magazines and newspapers. JSTOR has emerged as the most stable and reliable archive of digitized scholarly content. Its many collecting categories contain pdf photographic images of each issue of each journal.

* A range of core journals in diverse fields of literary criticism selected with the help of the Modern Language Association and including PMLA
* Among the titles included are Political Science Quarterly, College English, American Literature, Journal of Black Studies, American Journal of Sociology, American Journal of Mathematics, and many others
