vendors, agents, etc.). The moderators review submitted messages for
informational content that may interest our subscribers.

We reserve the right to reject messages that are purely for advertising or
product/service solicitation, with little or no informational content
beyond the solicitation, as well as other content that are not within the
scope and purpose guidelines of SERIALST:

May 19, 2010 - JSTOR Announces Current Collections

In conjunction with the 2011 launch of the Current Scholarship
Program (CSP), JSTOR is pleased to introduce the Current
Collections.  Recently, JSTOR announced that 176 titles from 19
publishers will be available in the Current Scholarship Program for
the 2011 subscription year.  Individual titles will be available and,
based on input from our participating libraries, this current content
has also been organized into collections that mirror JSTOR's archive
collections.  The Current Collections are detailed below.  Each
collection has a link to a downloadable title list for that
Collection, which libraries can use for comparison purposes with
their own holdings.

A complete Current Scholarship Program Title List for 2011
