Database News & Tips

5,000 new photos added to JSTOR platform

From the Artstor blog:

Artstor has released 5,000 new images from Magnum Photos on the JSTOR platform, bringing the collection to more than 136,000 items. Our first JSTOR-only licensed image launch features photojournalistic coverage of momentous geopolitical events from 2021 and 2022, including global protests, the lives of political and economic refugees, the devastation of climate change, and much more.

(NOTE: The Artstor website will be retired on August 1, 2024, and all users will be redirected to JSTOR.)

Gale Literature Resource Center Enhancements

From the Gale blog: 

Gale Literature Resource Center has been enhanced to provide students with new search paths that quickly pinpoint relevant content and provide a way for librarians and faculty to create links directly to studied works, literary topics, and themes.

  • Topic pages focused on Works and Literary Topics/Themes.
  • A refreshed home page, with a monthly rotation of featured works and topics.
  • A new browse experience to find content by broad topical categories, individual topics, and works.
  • Access to an increased number of original works of literature via Gale College Collection, a resource previously limited to Cengage Learning courses.

(Note: OCC's video tutorial for this database will be updated soon.)
