Reminder: Searching JSTOR? Now search DISCOVER too

New features in JSTOR make it easier to extend your search instantly to look for results from the full Library DISCOVER service.

As you search for something in JSTOR you will see that there is a link ready and waiting to take your search into DISCOVER ('Search... at DISCOVER'). There's also an additional link at the foot of the results page to carry your search forward:

Once you get to the 3rd page of results, you'll also be prompted to try your search in the Library's DISCOVER service:

The link to 'Try your search at DISCOVER' now also appears on the Advanced Search screen:

If you get no results in JSTOR then a much larger DISCOVER search box is displayed!

University of Liverpool Library offers access to over 1300 JSTOR journal titles

is the Library's unified, customised index of University of Liverpool Library resources, print and e-resources, books and journal articles - an easy yet powerful means of accessing what the Library has from one single search box.

It works the other way too. JSTOR content is in DISCOVER as well of course and you can find JSTOR content by selecting JSTOR as the 'Content Provider ' in the left-hand column of your results screen.
