Based on faculty requests, CFCC Library subscribes to two JSTOR collections : Arts & Sciences II (127 journals in economics, history, archaeology, classics, and Asian, African, Latin American, Middle Eastern, and Slavic studies.), and Arts & Sciences VIII (140 journals in the core humanities disciplines of history, language, and literature; and in education, philosophy, classical studies, music, art and art history).
