    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

The development of modern Chinese librarianship can be traced to the Public Library Movement in China (1840-1915) with its advocacy of European, American, and Japanese library systems. The New Library Movement, from 1911 on, led to the adoption of American methods of training librarians and establishing public, university, and special libraries as well as forming local and national library associations. The impact of American librarianship on modern Chinese librarianship, which grew stronger from 1925 to 1937, reemerged after the Cultural Revolution.
