JSTOR Tutorial

What is JSTOR?

JSTOR Includes archives of over one thousand leading academic journals across the humanities, social sciences, and sciences, as well as select monographs and other materials valuable for academic work. Journals are always included from volume 1, issue 1 and include previous and related titles. The most recently published issues (past 3-5 years) are not available. However, users can search this material and link to the publisher's site or other online source for access.

This tutorial will show you how to search the JSTOR database. It is divided into two segments - Basic Search and Advanced Search. We recommend you take the basic tutorial first before you proceed to Advanced Search.

To access JSTOR, begin at the Buley Library Home Page and select JSTOR from the list of "Popular Databases" on the left panel.
Please note that off-campus users will be prompted for a username and password.
