On Friday, September 9 and Saturday, September 10, JSTOR will be performing site maintenance that requires a “read-only” period for these two days. During this scheduled maintenance, users will be able to search, browse, and access and download PDF files for content in JSTOR. They will not be able to save citations, reset passwords, create or update MyJSTOR accounts, or purchase articles.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and appreciate your patience as JSTOR works to make improvements.
Please feel free to contact a Watzek librarian (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.

Congratulations to Sara Miller & Devin Owen, the 2011 winners of the Watzek Library First-Year Research Award!
This award was created to highlight the value of good research techniques, reward scholarly research that develops a thoughtful and methodical approach to the research process, and demonstrate how scholarly research develops the critical thinking, reading, writing and speaking skills that are an integral part of a liberal arts education. The awards will be given this year in memory of our much-missed library director, Dr. James J. Kopp, who taught in the Core program for many years and was an impassioned researcher and scholar in his own right.
Questions or comments regarding the Watzek Library First-Year Research Award may be directed to Kate Rubick (email@example.com).
