Internet ResourcesThe Jane Austen Collection at Goucher College houses one of the premier collections of Jane Austen's work and memorabilia in the United States. The site describes the collection which includes copies of first editions, translations, critical studies, and background literature of her life and work.
The Jane Austen Society of North America is a group dedicated to "study and celebrate the genius of Jane Austen". A "serious, but not stuffy" group, it publishes the annual journal Persuasions which can be accessed electronically, or in Davis (call number PR4036 .A15) and contains literary reviews, discussions of characters, reports and papers from the annual conference, articles written by members, and news of JASNA activities.
The Jane Austen Information Page is a fun way to learn about the author. It includes full text of her works, criticism, and biographical information as well as Jane Austen jokes and other amusing send-offs, like geneological charts of her characters. As with many web sites, it should not be considered an authoritative source, but may point a scholar towards other useful sources.
Jane Austen Film and Television Adaptations is a good place to find out which of her novels have been made adapted for film. It provides links to the home pages of many of the more recent sites, and includes video clips and downloadable pictures.

The "moving wall" represents the time period between the last issue available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal. Moving walls are generally represented in years. In rare instances, a publisher has elected to have a "zero" moving wall, so their current issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication.
Note: In calculating the moving wall, the current year is not counted.
For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available.
- Terms Related to the Moving Wall
- Fixed walls: Journals with no new volumes being added to the archive.
- Absorbed: Journals that are combined with another title.
- Complete: Journals that are no longer published or that have been combined with another title.
