Happening Now: Undergraduate Senior Thesis Prize Nominations
The Caltech Library and the Undergraduate Academic Standards and Honors Committee (UASH) are now accepting nominations from faculty for the 2022 Undergraduate Senior Thesis Prize, which recognizes senior theses that exemplify research and the effective use of the scholarly record. The prize is made possible by the Friends of the Caltech Library.
Featured Resource: JSTOR’s Expanded Access Program
The Library currently subscribes to 6 JSTOR Journal Collections. In 2020, JSTOR announced that during the pandemic all subscribers would have expanded access to all JSTOR journal collections. JSTOR has just announced that they’re continuing this expanded access for another year, through June 2023. Our campus can continue to enjoy full access to all JSTOR journal archive content for another year.
