New Info Page About “Books at JSTOR” Initiative Now Online, Launch Set for November

The new Books at JSTOR info page is available at: http://books.jstor.org/

The initiative was first announced in 2011.

Books at JSTOR is an initiative to publish scholarly books online as part of JSTOR, one of the most well known and widely used scholarly resources.

Our driving focus is to deliver great content and experiences to researchers–an objective shared by publishers and libraries. Books will be cross-searchable with the millions of journal articles and primary sources on JSTOR, linked through our vast network of citations, contextualized by more than 1 million book reviews on the platform, and provide an online research experience marked by personalized, user-driven functionality.
