Project MUSE Updated

Among the exciting features available in the new design are content footnotes and references presented “in-line” with the associated text in a journal article or book chapter, a streamlined search experience with additional facets for book series and thematic journal issues, a highly responsive design to meet a variety of device options, and the launch of personalized “MyMUSE” accounts that allow users customize their research experience on MUSE.

Personalized MUSE Accounts

Users who create a MyMUSE account may save and view prior searches, build a personal library of their favorite MUSE materials (books, chapters, journals, issues, or articles), generate citations for all or selected items in their library, search within their personal library, and view their activity history on MUSE. With an account, a user may also set up alerts for their favorite journals, publishers, and subjects on MUSE, and choose to receive the alerts via email or RSS, or see them in an attractive dashboard format on the site. Accessibility was a prime consideration in the new platform design, and users may set preferences in their account to customize the interface for optimal accessibility.
