    How fast does JSTOR grow?

       JSTOR is one of the library’s most popular digital collections. Thousands of searches are conducted in JSTOR over a typical year, sometimes thousands of searches are run in a single month.   From a recent email, JSTOR, in 2015, added: Archives of 226 journals Comprising 856,000 articles If shelved, the print version would consume 1,348 linear feet of shelving   What does this mean for JSTOR‘s collection contents, when taken all together? Archives of 2,300 journals 10.7 million articles in print, this would be 68.9 million pages of text     Information from: JSTOR. “988,000 articles added to JSTOR Archive Collections.” Message to Lura Sanborn. 1 Feb. 2016.
