JSTOR Access for Alumni Program

Are you currently unaffiliated with a subscribing institution and need access to JSTOR?  See if your University is listed below, if not, contact your alumni association and request that they join the program.

JSTOR Access for Alumni
The new Alumni Access program is an important step in our ongoing efforts to extend access to scholarship to individuals around the world. It enables eligible higher education institutions to provide their alumni with full access to the same set of archive collection content available to current students and faculty.

The launch of the Alumni Access program follows a successful 3-year pilot that was undertaken with nearly 50 institutions, including public and private institutions, US and overseas universities, and theological seminaries. We introduced the pilot to address interest from our participating institutions, and to examine whether this access model may help to serve the access requests from individuals who are no longer active students at participating institutions. This pilot helped JSTOR and our partner libraries understand the implementation issues and to develop an approach that we believe will be valuable and sustainable.
