How to use Jstor

Posted in Joseph Slaybe at 3:09 pm by groupone

Ok so I’ve used alot of databases in the past, to do many different projects. Now how is Jstor a little different from the rest, is a good question. Jstor basically gives you articles that have an open-ended story. So you can add more things to it between, the last article and the new one. This is called a moving wall. A couple things I looked up were tennis as a bold subject, and another more specifically the NBA draft. Things that were differnent about these topics were the fact that they had like theorys and ways of ranking. They had how NBA drafts can effect cost and playing time. Things you normally wouldn’t think of.

 

The second part of the assignment was to look up Edgar Allan Poe. Poe was a crazy and obsessive man who wrote scary and twisted poetry.
