JSTOR has announced the following new features that will enhance searching, viewing, and printing articles found in the JSTOR archive.
- A new PDF format for downloading and printing articles has replaced the previous High Quality PDF format. This new format enables JSTOR users to "search" or "find" words and phrases within the PDF version of JSTOR articles, as well as copy and paste portions of text from them.
- Search term highlighting is now available in JSTOR page images. When a user searches for a term and follows a link to an article from the results, the search terms will be highlighted in the article's page images.
- ARTstor, a non-profit initiative founded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, provides a repository of hundreds of thousands of digital images and related data. Similar to JSTOR, ARTstor's mission is to serve the scholarly community through its collections. To enhance the benefits of these two resources and to enable researchers to discover useful content across all formats, JSTOR has developed a way to search both JSTOR and ARTstor content simultaneously.
Specifically, users have the opportunity to search JSTOR article content, JSTOR image captions, and metadata for ARTstor images. Search results pages are separated into three tabs — Articles, Images from Articles, and ARTstor Images — so that users can easily view and choose among their results. Article image thumbnails accompany the caption results, and ARTstor results contain title, creator, and date information.
The intent of these grants is to enlist the help of Boise State University faculty in identifying areas of the collection needing special attention. An additional goal is to promote critical information use in the curriculum by bringing together faculty and librarians to enhance the quality of student use of information resources. Faculty or departments who are interested in applying for a grant should begin the process by contacting their library liaison.
Send completed applications to the Coordinator of Collection Development, Peggy Cooper by Monday, May 7, 2007. The grant recipients will be announced on Friday, May 18, 2007. Call Peggy at 426-2311 for additional information.
Now know this: we've added an additional eight much-needed computers to the computer commons on the first floor. Now you can work on your Word, PowerPoint, or Excel files without having to wait (too long) for a computer.
With the eight new computers, there are now a total of 84 fully connected computers in the Library. If you find yourself in need of a computer, come to the Library or head on over to one of the many computer labs around campus.
