Weary of combing through dusty library stacks to dig up old print-only articles? If you're an ecologist or botanist, you'll welcome the latest collection from JSTOR, a nonprofit that's building a Web archive of page-by-page scans of journal back issues. Together with the Ecological Society of America, JSTOR has just unveiled 29 major ecology and botany journals. Some, such as American Naturalist, go back as far as 130 years. Most major university libraries subscribe to the database, which can be searched by full text.

JSTOR recently reached another landmark of interest to this magazine's readers: You can now look up articles in Science back to the very first issue in 1895.
