How to use JSTOR

• JSTOR was founded in 1995 to build trusted digital archives for scholarship. Today, we enable the scholarly community to preserve their work and the materials they rely upon, and to build a common research platform that promotes the discovery and use of these resources.

• Began adding current issues for some 170+ titles but mostly consists of back issues

• HML subscribes to the full-text component BUT also shows links to articles outside the library. You must pay attention to what you find.

• There is no “FIND IT” button• Easiest way to work with JSTOR is to get a free account and go from there.
