JSTOR Added to List of Data Bases Available to W&L Alumni
The Office of Alumni Affairs and the Friends of the Library of W&L are pleased to announce that the scholarly journals provided by JSTOR are now available to W&L alumni from off-campus sites. W&L is in a select group of colleges that are participating in a pilot project of allowing alumni to access JSTOR. The test runs through December 2012. At its May meeting, the Board of the Friends of the Library voted to provide funding for W&L’s participation in the test. The Friends already provide funding for access to the EBSCO Academic Search Alumni Edition and Business Source Alumni Edition.
JSTOR is a digital archive of over 1,100 important scholarly journals across the humanities, social sciences, and sciences, as well as select monographs and other materials valuable for academic work. All issues of each journal are in full-text. In most cases, the most recent 2-to-5 years of articles are not included in JSTOR, based on JSTOR's agreement with the journal's publisher. Some current content is available as well.
To access JSTOR you must create a MyJSTOR account first, once registered you may access it by going to JSTOR.org and log in at MyJSTOR.
Go to https://colonnadeconnections.wlu.edu/Netcommunity/SSLPage.aspx?pid=599, log in with your alumni ID and password, and you will be directed to the Alumni Research Databases page for further instructions.
Please let the Friends of the Library know what you think!
