JSTOR Daily - Articles and Websites on Historical Topics and Current Events

JSTOR Daily publishes new stories daily on historical and news-related topics. All of the stories feature research from the digital library and database JSTOR (which stands for "journal storage"). The organization negotiates the rights to also open up the underlying research (news and journal articles, etc.), so that anyone can download it for free. Visit
Here is a sampling of topics and stories from recent JSTOR posts.

* JSTOR Daily Celebrates Black History Month (Dozens of stories on African American history, culture, and politics)
