“Above and Beyond Google”
The Hale-Ray Library Media Specialist, Gary Mezzi, is pleased to announce that as of this month, our students now have access to JSTOR, the world’s leading digital library of scholarly journals and research. This subscription database archives 2,000 academic journal titles, and 20,000 scholarly books, exposing students to the resources they will be expected to use in college research. JSTOR has been a fixture of higher education since 1995, but has only begun to offer its resources to secondary schools. Currently, only about only 30 (mostly private) secondary schools in CT offer JSTOR access. www.jstor.org
