This collection also includes a selection of titles in the more science-oriented fields of ecology, mathematics, and statistics.

The Arts & Sciences II Collection is home to 124 titles. This adds depth to Arts & Sciences I and also offers core journals in several new disciplines, such as archaeology and African, Latin American, Middle Eastern, and Slavic studies.

The Arts & Sciences III Collection contains 150 additional titles. It adds titles in language and literature as well as important titles in music, film studies, folklore, religion, and art history.

The Arts & Sciences IV Collection includes 112 titles and has a strong focus on the professions of business, education, and law, and also includes titles in psychology and public policy and administration.

The Arts & Sciences Collection V includes full-text articles from 120 journals. This collection builds on previously introduced disciplines, adding important literary reviews and state historical journals. It also widens the scope of core disciplines in the arts and humanities, such as philosophy, history, classics, religion, art and art history, and language and literature.

The Arts & Sciences Collection VI includes full-text articles from an additional 120 journals. This collection extends coverage in disciplines across the social sciences, with clusters focused in economics, education, linguistics, political science, and area studies.
