Gladwell’s database: JSTOR – not just for research anymore

Just a note for all of you who saw Malcolm Gladwell’s talk, we appreciate the shout-out to libraries! He noted that he gets some of inspiration by throwing random words into JSTOR and seeing what comes up. We have JSTOR if you want to try it out, and many more databases as well.

Gladwell also noted the usefulness of following references from one bibliography to find other articles of interest – one of the 6 habits of highly effective researchers.
