This fall, the library has expanded its JStor collection to include ebook chapters. When you conduct a search in JStor, you will now see both Journal Articles and Chapters in your search results.
In this search for material on the poet Claudia Rankine, you see two results. One for her poem “Atlantic Shores,” published in the Mississippi Review, notes on the right that it is from a journal. The second result is a chapter from the book American Hybrid Poets. On the right, you’ll see that this is designated as a Chapter.
You can download, save, and print book chapters the same way you would download a JStor article. To see all the chapters available in a particular book, click on the book title. This will take you to the JStor page for that book, including its full table of contents:
To use JStor books, visit JStor while on HillSpot, or authenticate to the Stonehill network from off campus. Conduct your search as you would normally, and both journal articles and book chapters will be displayed in your results. If you wish to see only book chapters, click on the “Books” tab in your search results.
JStor books are free of digital rights management (DRM) software. This means that any JStor book chapter can be placed on electronic reserve for your course, and students can freely download and print these book chapters. In addition, you can link to the full table of contents for the book by using the Stable URL provided by JStor.
Soon, all JStor ebooks will also be available within HillSearch. If you have any questions about using JStor, or our other library databases and ebook collections, contact email@example.com or call 508-565-1203.
