JSTOR has a number of separate collections and we subscribe to about half of them. JSTOR is essentially collections of digitized back runs of journals although they are now branching out to include other types of resources such as books and primary documents.
Because this is a commercial database, access is limited to institutions that have paid subscriptions. If you access JSTOR from the Libraries' website or from a computer on campus, you will be recognized or authenticated and connected to subsections of JSTOR that we subscribe to. If you go directly to JSTOR.org from off-campus, you will not be recognized as a valid user and you will not be connected to the full-text resources.
You can search JSTOR directly by going to the Libraries' website, choosing Databases by Subject and Type.
If you are using another database, the Article Linker check for full-text connection from citations will take you to the full-text in JSTOR if that journal content is part of our JSTOR collection.
If you have questions or would like to learn how to use JSTOR as a search tool, please ask the librarian at the Research Help Desk.
