Georgia Historical Quarterly Archives Now Available Online at JSTOR

SAVANNAH, Ga., August 15, 2011 -The Georgia Historical Society (GHS) is pleased to announce the entire back run of the Georgia Historical Quarterly is now accessible online through Journal Storage (JSTOR), the not-for-profit digital archive.

Researchers at institutions that participate in JSTOR’s Arts & Sciences VIII Collection are able to browse, search, download and print the full-text PDF versions of all past articles from the first issue in 1917, up until the most recent three years of publication.

The Georgia Historical Quarterly is one of the premier state historical journals in the United States, published quarterly by the Georgia Historical Society. The Quarterly publishes the finest scholarly articles on Georgia history and book reviews dealing with all aspects of southern and Georgia history. The Georgia Historical Society has published the Quarterly since 1917. Critically-acclaimed over the years by scholars and history enthusiasts alike, the GHQ has been recognized by the governor of Georgia with a Governor’s Award in the Humanities.

    Just to clarify, SCAD Libraries provides access to JSTOR, but our subscription does not currently include the “Arts and Sciences VIII” collection, in which the GA Historical Quarterly can be accessed. However, we do have a near-complete print run of this periodical in the Jen Library, vols. 3-95, 1917-present. (We are able to send articles between SCAD locations, so if you need a specific GHQ article but cannot visit the library in Savannah, please ask!)

    I have forwarded this information to members of our collection development committee so we can take it under future consideration, should it be necessary to expand SCAD’s JSTOR subscription.

    Please contact the library if you have any questions –
