Libraries adds 'Muse' to its database
1:55:35 PM CDT - Wednesday, April 23, 2003
University Libraries has added Project Muse to electronic periodical resources available to the university community through its Web site http://library.wsu.edu/.
Project Muse offers full-text, full-image articles in the humanities, the arts, and the social sciences from nearly 200 quality journal titles. The fields of literature and criticism, history, the visual and performing arts, cultural studies, education, political science, gender studies, economics, and many others are covered.
Researchers can perform keyword searching; search full-text across all journals in the database, selected subsets of journal titles, or in just a single title; and search tables of contents of articles and book reviews by author and title as well as by Library of Congress subject headings. Hypertext links embedded in documents allow efficient navigation among article bibliographies, citations, endnotes, author biographies and illustrations. Results lists give a choice of HTML or PDF access.
Project Muse is one of 140 databases available electronically through the libraries' Web site. The databases are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to WSU faculty, students and staff who have Web access, and to all users from computers located at Ablah Library.
