ABC-CLIO Announces Links with JSTOR

ABC-CLIO has announced that it will link its historical abstracting-and-indexing databases, Historical Abstracts and America: History and Life, to the 139 journals contained in the Arts & Sciences I and Arts & Sciences II Collections of the JSTOR archive.

With this new agreement, ABC-CLIO database users who also subscribe to JSTORwill have over 60,000 direct links to the full text of journals in the JSTOR archive, such as The American Historical Review, The Journal of Southern History, and William and Mary Quarterly. Users will be able to link to full text from both short and long abstracts that date as far back as 1954. Libraries with subscriptions to Historical Abstracts or America: History and Life and who also participate in JSTOR's Arts & Sciences I and/or Arts & Sciences II Collection(s), will automatically see these links.

"We are pleased to be working with JSTOR and to announce this linking partnership. We are delighted that our subscribers can now use our databases as an access point to JSTOR's wealth of full-text journal literature. Being able to provide this type of access continues our mission of meeting the needs of history researchers of all types," said Vicky Speck, ABC-CLIO's editorial director of serials.

Historical Abstracts and America: History and Life, established in 1955 and 1964 respectively, are research tools for students, scholars, and historians. They contain abstracts of journal articles and book reviews pertaining to the history of the world, with more than 16,000 new abstracts added to each database every year. Both databases were brought to the Web in 1998.
