PhilPapers is a comprehensive directory of online philosophy articles and books by academic philosophers. They monitor journals in many areas of philosophy, as well as archives and personal pages. They also accept articles directly from users, who can provide links or upload copies. The site is open to search, but much of the full-text is licensed material (though much of that is available through the Library).
Project Muse Restricted Resource Some full text available
Full-text current and archival articles from 580+ scholarly journals from major university presses covering literature and criticism, history, performing arts, cultural studies, education, philosophy, political science, gender studies, and more. The Library's subscription also includes over 1,800 e-books. Updated continually.
