May 24, 2002
AJA 1885-1999 Available Online
The AIA is happy to announce that the American Journal of Archaeology will be available online as a part of JSTOR's Art & Sciences II Collection. The complete run of AJA, from the inception of its second series in 1885 through 1999 (volumes 1-103), will be available with the completion of the collection at the end of 2002. We are grateful to Harvard University, the University of Chicago, and Augustana College for their generous donations of most back issues.
Originally conceived by William G. Bowen, President of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, JSTOR is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping the scholarly community take advantage of advances in electronic technologies. JSTOR's primary goal is to build a reliable and comprehensive digital archive of core journals. Additional information on JSTOR and a demonstration database is available at www.jstor.org.
