JSTOR Has HUGE Online Archive

If you’re reading this blog during this crisis, it’s likely you’re at home. You might be lucky enough to be working from home, or perhaps be enjoying paid leave for the duration of the epidemic and diverting yourself — or taking a break from frantically job-searching or hustling for more free lance work to replace that which has evaporated.  If you’re in one of the former categories and looking for new reading material you can access from your computer, it’s been pointed that Jstor has a huge online archive. Their site says:

“JSTOR provides access to more than 12 million academic journal articles, books, and primary sources in 75 disciplines.

“We help you explore a wide range of scholarly content through a powerful research and teaching platform. We collaborate with the academic community to help libraries connect students and faculty to vital content while lowering costs and increasing shelf space, provide independent researchers with free and low-cost access to scholarship, and help publishers reach new audiences and preserve their content for future generations.

“JSTOR is part of ITHAKA, a not-for-profit organization that also includes Artstor, Ithaka S+R, and Portico.”
