JSTOR vs. J-Kwon (A Database Tale)
The library continues to seek excellent full-text resources to meet the research needs of your students (and you!). We've recently added two JSTOR Arts and Sciences collections to our database offerings to bring you full-text articles from core journals in the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Sciences. Encourage your students to explore this new journal resource (in addition to the thousands of magazines, journals, and newspaper articles and electronic books in our existing databases.)
JSTOR is a highly regarded journal archive, holding complete digitized runs of scholarly journals, starting with the first issues. To access JSTOR, go to the SCC Library home page, Click Library Databases page, then click JSTOR. On campus, you'll enter the JSTOR database immediately. Off-campus, you'll need a Student Access Card or Employee ID card and a library PIN; stop by the library circulation desk to get one.
warn your students, though, that JSTOR,
the highly respected database of scholarly journal articles, is not to be
confused with J-Kwon, the moderately respected rapper.
an attempt to minimize the inevitable confusion between JSTOR and J-Kwon,
we’ve prepared this handy quick reference chart for you and your students:
