   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
