B is for Bulletin...

Welcome to the second installment of the electronic journals spotlight series! In keeping with our commitment to providing first-class research materials, the library continues to expand its collection of electronic journals, accessible via the E-Journals A-Z list on the library's homepage. This month we focus on the B's...

Let's begin with our very own Bulletin of the Cleveland Museum of Art, which began publication in 1914, when the original museum building was still under construction, and ceased in 1994, superseded by the still active Members Magazine. Digitized by JSTOR in 2008, the complete run is available online.

The Bulletin of the John Rylands University Library of Manchester is a veritable cornucopia of scholarly interests, focusing on the Special Collections of the John Rylands Library, one of the finest collections of rare books and manuscripts in the world. Topics span five millennia and cover such subjects as science and medicine; literature and drama; and travel and exploration; as well as art, archaeology and music.

Moving down the B list we come to one of our most popular publications, the Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies. This Bulletin is the leading interdisciplinary journal on Asia, Africa and the Near and Middle East, covering the languages, cultures and civilizations of these regions from the ancient to the present.

And finally, for those philosophers out there, don't forget to check out the British Journal of Aesthetics (I know, it doesn't start with Bulletin, but its a good one!). The BJA is a peer reviewed, international forum for debate on the philosophy of art and the principles of art criticism.

Check out the big list online, and I’ll see you next month for a visit to the letter C!
