Need Help Finding Additional Articles on a Topic
If so, then you may be interested in learning about JSTOR Labs. Originally launched in 2014, JSTOR Labs creates digital tools for assisting students, teachers, and researchers in finding and utilizing sources in JSTOR's diverse and vast collection of more than 10 million titles covering 75 disciplines.
Some of these tools are magical, indeed! While JSTOR Labs currently has 8 active tools available, there are 2 tools in particular that we'd like to bring to your attention today that you may find helpful with your coursework at Mississippi College:
Topicgraph analyzes articles and books (in PDF form) and then creates a list of topics covered in that source. Each topic sits alongside a corresponding graph that indicates where the topic is discussed. Simply clicking on one of the graphs will take you directly to the page in the document where you can read about that topic!
Learn more about Topicgraph from the following video, produced by you Reference Team at MC.
Text Analyzer is a really helpful tool as well, especially if you're having difficulty finding relevant keywords or search results. When you upload a document into Text Analyzer, the program will analyze the text to find the key topics covered in the source as well as the terms used. But that's not all; Text Analyzer also finds similar content within JSTOR.
JSTOR, along with your Reference Team at Speed Library, is curious about how useful students and faculty find these new tools. Please take a brief moment to answer the following questions, thank you!
