Those are almost all universities and colleges. My local community college (which is not among the Project MUSE subscribers, but has JSTOR) will let me borrow books as a local non-student, but restricts its computer-based resources to students only, even in person at the library. There are many colleges and universities in the area, but all at least 20 minutes away (and heaven only knows what parking traps for the unwary they sport) - and as a mom of a toddler I can't really get out further than the community college, even if some of them did allow non-students to come in to use their databases. Any rate, the Minnesota connection will do fine. I've never seen such a great public library system - and I grew up in Howard County, MD... (I note, however, that even the Minnesota public libraries with their JSTOR access do not appear to be Project MUSE subscribers; Project MUSE may be even more restrictive than JSTOR?) Thanks, Amanda
