JSTOR Platform Update Scheduled for December 18th

Dear Colleagues -

We are pleased to announce that on December 18, 2010, JSTOR will 
perform a platform update in support of the Current Scholarship 

Highlights of this platform update include:

* A wider range of content formats, including full-text HTML for 
some journals and downloadable PDFs for all current journal 
* Multimedia files for some journals
* New personalization features, including the ability to register 
for Table of Contents (TOC) emails and alerts when new content 
matches saved search terms
* New informational pages for the titles participating in the 
Current Scholarship Program

Changes to existing functionality and forthcoming features:

* Article citation information will reside within the "View 
Citation" overlay
* The "Collections at your institution" page will list licensed 
Archive Collections and licensed CSP titles. Please note that the 
export of an institution-specific holdings file will no longer be 
accessible from this page, but may be requested by contacting 
* Please note that Current Issues Linking will be removed for 
titles in the Current Scholarship Program. This change will take 
effect on 12/18. While current issues will not be accessible 
until 1/1, link resolvers will continue to point at the 
appropriate targets.
* All CSP content will be preserved in Portico, and manifest 
pages will be made available for CSP publishers who participate 
in LOCKSS. Data sharing with Portico and LOCKSS will be available 
in mid-2011.

During this platform update, you may not be able to use MyJSTOR 
(for example, to save citations, or to make changes to your 
account,) however everything else should function as normal.

Release of Current Issues on JSTOR

Please note that from December 18 - 31, 2010, JSTOR will be

content for CSP journals, and recent back issues for most titles. 
It will also include archival content to volume 1, issues 1 for 
most titles. Please be aware that during this brief period, users 
may locate this content if they choose to browse or search all 
content. They will not have access to this content, however, 
until 2011 subscription access begins on JSTOR the first of the

the platform update in detail. For times and to register, visit
