Resources for Learning and Teaching Remotely

This guide lists a few of the electronic resources that are now available to students and faculty to help with distance learning and teaching for the Spring semester

JSTOR, Project Muse, and EBSCO Enhanced Journal access

A number of vendors have expanded our journal subscriptions, including new JSTOR collections, Project Muse expanded date range access to our current subscriptions, and upgraded EBSCOHost Ultimate Collection journals. All of this content will be temporarily integrated into OneSearch when possible, or you can search each platform directly using our usual links on the A-Z database list. To find the additional EBSCO and JSTOR content by title, please search CUNY's Journal Finder. This link does not include many of our subscriptions, but it does include most of the new content; please start with OneSearch and our local Journal Finder. You will need a library barcode to access journals directly from the CUNY site.

The Newsweek Archive

ProQuest has allowed us to have full access to the complete Newsweek Magazine Archive, from 1933 -2012. The articles are presented in page-image format available from cover to cover so pictures, sidebars, and advertisements are all included, in color. A great resource for history, political science, media culture, communications and many other fields!
