Funded by a recent “large Allen” grant; proposal submitted by Glenda Pearson and Jessica Albano:
An archival research resource containing the essential primary sources for studying the history of the film and entertainment industries, from the era of vaudeville and silent movies through to 2000. The core US and UK trade magazines covering film, music, broadcasting and theater are all included, together with film fan magazines and music press titles. Magazines have been scanned cover-to-cover in high-resolution color, with granular indexing of all articles, covers, ads and reviews.
The Vogue Archive contains the entire run of American Vogue magazine from 1892 to the present day – more than 400,000 pages in total reproduced in high-resolution color page images. This fully searchable database constitutes a treasure trove of the work of the greatest designers, photographers, stylists and illustrators of the 20th and 21st centuries. The Vogue Archive is both an essential primary source for the study of fashion and a unique record of American and international popular culture.
The Libraries now has access to both the JSTOR Arts & Sciences X and XI collections. Arts and Sciences X is being purchased in cooperation with the Faculty Council on University Libraries, which in March 2011 gained the Faculty Senate’s unanimous approval of a resolution to establish the Faculty Fund for Library Excellence, described as “ a University gift fund available for current and emeritus faculty donors to support the University Libraries’ collections.” JSTOR Arts & Sciences X is an especially appropriate use of funds donated so far because of its broad coverage in Business and the Social Sciences, the History of Science, Technology & Medicine.
Arts & Sciences XI is being acquired with Libraries’ funds, and “ will expand JSTOR’s coverage in the humanities, with scholarship in core fields of Language & Literature, History, and Art & Art History. Comprising a minimum of 125 titles, the collection will include important journals in Classical Studies, Architecture & Architectural History, and Music. Other discipline clusters will include Bibliography, Library Science, Religion, Philosophy, Archaeology, Performing Arts, Film Studies, and Linguistics.
Access is available now. Records for individual titles are in process and will be available in a few weeks.
