MHS Proceedings & MHR Now Available on JSTOR

I'm very pleased to report that the Proceedings of the Massaschusetts Historical Society (1791-1997) and the Massachusetts Historical Review (1999- ) are now available digitally through the subscription database JSTOR. Most universities and large public libraries (including the Boston Public Library) offer access to JSTOR content, which means our publications are now much more widely accessible to scholars and researchers around the world.

The search capability provided by JSTOR is a real treat - just yesterday I was looking for something in the Proceedings and rather than browsing through several different index volumes, I just ran a full-text search across all the volumes and had the answer in no time.

Note: Many volumes of the Proceedings are also freely available via Google Books, but not in a systematic way.
