Project MUSE is a database which excels in humanities and social science content. It includes over 350 full-text, peer-reviewed journals, as well as many full books. This database have two main ways to explore its content: through keyword searches, or browsing by subject. The first, exploring through searches, should be a familiar format:
There is the first main search bar across the top, as well as the faceted search boxes underneath which provide the options to set your parameters and search by content, title, author, or publisher, along with a few boolean operators. If you hold your mouse over the "browse" button you will also see a menu pop up with the different ways you can browse (by subject within research area, or by all titles alphabetically, or by publisher or journal).
There are also a few other advanced search options that you can take advantage of when using keyword searches in Project MUSE. On the left side of the advanced search screen, or the results page, you will find a list of various facets to help narrow your search. These include limiting your results to "Only content I have full access to," as well as to materials published within certain date ranges (a common requirement from professors being using only the most recent research), among other options.
When you find an item that you like, you can click on the blue title text to open the document. You can also open an article in different formats by clicking the related links (e.g. viewing an HTML record or downloading the PDF). Another helpful option is that you can follow the source link just below the title to view the entire issue of the journal a particular article was first published in, allowing you to find similar or related materials with ease.
