There are a few different ways you can access the JSTOR research database.

  1. Go to the library home page, and type "jstor" into the search box at the top of the page, and press "Search". You will find a link to JSTOR under the very first section of your results called "Best bet", or at the very end of your results, under the section called "Research and journal databases".
  2. Go to the library home page and click on "Find & use resources" from the menu at the top, and then select "Research & journal databases" at the top of the leftmost column of sub-menu items.  From there you can either:
  • browse by title under the letter 'J' and select JSTOR from the list;
  • or browse by subject, for example, under "History".

When you are in the database, limit your search by checking "Articles" as an item type and conduct your search by entering some keywords in the search box (they can be article title, abstract, full text keywords, or an author name). You also can narrow down your search by choosing a particular discipline and/or a journal you are interested the most. 

If you need more help, please contact your subject librarian or just Ask us.
