Facebook app for finding articles

Now you can search for scholarly journal articles from your Facebook page. The JSTOR search application allows you to search for the full text of articles, primarily in the social sciences and humanities, although there is some science content. Coverage dates extend from the late 1800s to the early 2000s.

Access to the full text of JSTOR articles requires a subscription, but lucky for you, the MTSU Library has one! To tap into it, when you add the application to your page, you will need to add this to the "Set Proxy" line:

You may also be prompted to login with your Pipeline account before receiving the full text of an article.

Happy hunting, and if you need help finding something, contact us.

If you don't have a Facebook account, you can still use the library subscription to JSTOR.
