Searching and thinking about searching JSTOR

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Digital resources are helping to change the ways scholars and students work, but they must also be helping to shape the work that gets done. Taking JSTOR as an example, we might ask about the discursive power of the database. How is using an online resource for research acceding to unnoticed assumptions that underlie the construction of that resource? Summer 2014
