    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.

Abstract

A brief history of the modern library movement and the development of library education in China is presented, including a historical review of the Boone Library School and other library training programs before 1949; an account of the change of philosophy in librarianship and the incorporation of political ideology in library functions after the establishment of the People's Republic of China; and a description of the different training programs the Chinese government launched to cope with the severe shortage of library personnel due to the phenomenal growth of public libraries. Finally, the expansion of library education after the cultural revolution and possible future developments of library modernization are discussed.
