Jason Baird Jackson (JBJ) of Museum Anthropology (the blog) takes a moment to point out an enhancement in Museum Anthropology (the journal), relating it to the searching capabilities of a critical research tool in our field:
Readers of Museum Anthropology (MUA) 29(2) will note that, with this issue, we began publishing abstracts of articles. Not only does this bring us into line with standard practice for scholarly journals, it was a move aimed at facilitating access to MUA article content via AnthroSource. Internet visitors to AnthroSource who lack individual or library access can gain table of content information and, if they choose, pay-per-view access to individual items. Providing an abstract gives such potential customers at least some knowledge of what they might be buying into.
In-house (i.e. MMA) researchers should have library access (or more accurately, desktop access) shortly. In fact I am remiss in not having it available even now. My apologies, and hang in there! In the meantime we do have print versions of many of the AnthroSource titles. So ask in the library first before you pony up.
