Changes to JSTOR’s Image-Search Feature
Previously, JSTOR allowed users to limit results by image—while this feature isn’t going away, it has changed in their most recent update. In order to search images, users will need now to key-word search on the caption field from the Advanced Search page. The drop-down menus to the right of the search boxes have a “caption” option, which will return content with images.
The screen shot below shows JSTOR’s advanced search page with “captions” selected from the drop down menu:
The results from this search all have images with a caption that contains the keywords.
If you have any questions about finding images in JSTOR or elsewhere, please feel free to contact the VRC!
