JSTOR turns on access to JSTOR Archive and Primary Source collections. The collections feature the full-text articles of more than 2,600 academic journals, and offer millions of primary sources supporting research and teaching in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences.
The MIT Press is offering access to more than 2,770 MIT Press eBooks via MIT Press Direct. Key subject areas covered in the complete collection include art and architecture, biomedical sciences, business and finance, computer science, cognitive science, design, education, environment, game studies, humanities, information science, linguistics, neuroscience, new media, philosophy, and social sciences.
Among the publishers currently opting to make content free on Project MUSE are Johns Hopkins University Press, Ohio State University Press, University of Nebraska Press, University of North Carolina Press, Temple University Press, Vanderbilt University Press and more.
