Introduction to Project MUSE®

What is Project MUSE?
Project MUSE ( is an online collection of over 250 scholarly journal titles in the arts, humanities, and social sciences from 40 university and society presses. MUSE journals cover many different subject areas including literature, history, political science, economics, education, film, philosophy, religion, women’s studies, and many more.

  • Project MUSE provides full-text articles, reviews (books, performance, art, music, etc.), fiction and poetry, and enlargeable illustrations and photographs. Most articles are offered in both HTML and PDF formats. MUSE also provides informational pages covering editorial and submission information for the journals.
  • Use our search engine to find articles, or “browse” the online journals issue by issue using the complete table of contents with clickable article entries.
  • Library of Congress Subject Headings are provided in the journal issue tables of contents and in the search result citations for articles (except reviews). Use these to quickly identify an article’s topic or to get ideas for alternate search terms.
  • Faculty and students can use MUSE from any computer in the campus-wide network or off-campus via the library ’s remote access server.
