  • Oct. 1, 2013


BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- A new partnership between the Indiana University Alumni Association and the IU libraries offers IUAA members online access to more than 2,000 academic journals and articles through JSTOR and Project MUSE.

"Our alumni have been clamoring for access to IU library materials," said Joan Hall, director of membership at the IUAA. "We are very pleased to be able to step up and help fulfill this demand."

This underscores the IU Alumni Association's commitment to making IU a reliable source for career-enhancing resources for its alumni.

"These resources can help all IU alumni accelerate their careers through access to leading scholarly research," said Caroline Dowd-Higgins, IUAA director of professional enrichment. "These digital libraries are an extension of the amazing education Indiana University offers, so it's fitting that our valued alumni can keep learning through the JSTOR and Project MUSE tools."

JSTOR is a shared digital library, created in 1995, that includes more than 1,500 leading academic journals in the humanities, social sciences and sciences. The entire system is full-text searchable, offers search term highlighting, includes high-quality images, and is interlinked by millions of citations and references.

Project MUSE is a leading provider of digital humanities and social-sciences content. It includes journals and articles from more than 500 scholarly publications from major university presses covering literature and criticism, history, performing arts, cultural studies, education, philosophy, political science and gender studies. MUSE journals are fully integrated for search and discovery, offering full text of current and archival articles.

IUAA members can access both JSTOR and Project MUSE journals from the IUAA website.

The IU Alumni Association is dedicated to serving the university and its diverse alumni, students and friends. As one of the nation's largest alumni organizations, serving more than 580,000 graduates worldwide, the IUAA provides many programs and services to its members, nonmember alumni and the university.
