The white marble statues and busts that fill the galleries of Greek and Roman art, including those of Emory's Carlos Museum, present a familiar idealizing vision of the classical past that is often also an idealizing vision of the West's cultural inherita

Finding Full-Text

BOOKS - start your search with discoverE and if the full-text facet is not offering you enough results, consider expanding to the COMBINED tab. 

ARTICLES - When you are searching for an article in a library database and you want to get the full-text of the article, there are 4 possible scenarios you could face.

Scenario 1: The full-text is available in the database you are searching. EASY! Just click the full-text link.

Scenario 2: The "Find it @ Emory" button   leads you to the full-text in another database. There are two steps in this process:

  • Click the Find it @ Emory button.
  • Click on the link to the resource that is listed after "Full text available at:"

Scenario 3: The "Find it @ Emory" button does not lead to the full-text, but the Libraries own the print copy of the journal. 

  • Search the journal title in discoverE. You can limit your search using "Journals" in the drop-down below the search box.
  • When you find the record for the journal, click the "Locate/Request Item" tab to see what volumes we have.
  • If you find your volume and it's located in the library you are in, you can use the call number to find the volume in the bookstacks.
  • If you find your volume and it's located at a different library or the Library Service Center, you can request the volume if you log in to discoverE (use "Log In" at top right of discoverE). Another option is to request just the article you need using the "Request Article or Chapter" tab in discoverE -- if available. This will give you the option of getting the article scanned for you.

Scenario 4: We do not have the article online or in print but you can request it using our Interlibrary Loan service. (Click the "Locate/Request Item" tab and then "Request via Interlibrary Loan" to have the request form pre-filled for you.)

JSTOR - Searching Tips

How to Search JSTOR Guide

You can narrow search results to the fields JSTOR uses for categorization of metadata. Each field is represented in a search by its abbreviation. The example above (au:smith) will find all items for which Smith is listed as an author. Appending ty:fla to a search ("Greek slave" ty:fla) will limit a search to full-length articles, and ty:brv will limit a search to book reviews. 

Other frequently used field abbreviations are:

  • jo: Journal title field                   jo:"Journal of Roman Studies"
  • la: Language                             la:eng = English
  • vo: Journal Volume field           vo:134

Reading List, a small selection

Consider the different relationships your object may have accrued in antiquity (who made, used, and viewed it? How did they interact with it? In what circumstances?). What might the object have represented to these people? How might their perspective change its meaning, specifically in terms of how slavery and enslaved people are shown?

  • Greek funerary sculpture
  • White-ground lekythoi
