Published on 26 August, 2022

Project Muse is a humanities and social sciences database that is new to CSN Libraries. It is a non-profit collaboration between libraries and publishers that provides peer-reviewed academic journals and electronic books. You can find both eBooks and articles in your search results.

  • Humanities include law, languages, philosophy, religion, mythology, gender and women’s studies, multicultural studies, pop culture, and art and music.
  • Social sciences include anthropology, economics, management, history, political science, psychology, and sociology.

You can find Project Muse in the library database A-Z list by clicking on Browse Databases. Search using the large search box at the top of the page or on the left-hand side of the page. Use the dropdown options to set your parameters and search by content, title, author, or publisher. Be sure to click the button “only content I have access to.”

After doing a search, you can further refine your results by using the filters or limiters, on the left side of the page, which include content type, research area (subject), and publication year.

Project Muse also has the option to open your own account to save searches.

Faculty can find resources for teaching and finding open access titles.

As always, if you need help don’t hesitate to Ask A Librarian!
