JSTOR, we're on a mission to improve the research experience for you
and your students! We've had a full summer of adding new content,
expanding our Open Access initiative, and piloting image search. Read on
to learn more and register for our upcoming webinar.
Open Access ebook initiative expands
More than 3,200 scholarly ebooks are freely available to researchers around the world! Top publishers
such as the University of California Press, Cornell University Press,
and Brill have contributed titles. The full text of this content is
fully searchable and accessible on JSTOR.org, and you can check out some of our most-used titles below:
addition, more than 600 out-of-print books published by El Colegio de
México will be digitized and made available on an Open Access basis on
JSTOR, thanks to a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. We are
delighted to work with El Colegio de México to make its scholarly works freely available to researchers. The titles will be available by the end of 2018.
Find images relevant to your research
Did you know that you can access Artstor's public collections for free? These include more than one million images, videos,
documents, and audio files from libraries' special collections, faculty
research, and institutional history materials, as well as hundreds of
thousands of images from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Anyone may view
and download these collections at library.artstor.org—no subscription or login required.
If you're at one of the 1,400+ institutions that subscribe to both
JSTOR and Artstor, you'll also see images at the top of your JSTOR
search results. Some fruitful terms to test this feature include World War I or Hagia Sophia. Or, of course, try your own search! This feature is currently in the pilot stage, and we welcome your feedback on what you’re seeing or would like to see.
Explore new JSTOR tools in an upcoming webinar

40-minute session, we'll demonstrate tools to help you and your students

A scholarly take on baseball cards
JSTOR Labs recently released Cultural History Baseball Cards,
the fruits of a week-long flash build hosted by the Library of Congress
to find new ways to connect the growing number of digital collections
available to researchers.
The beta site brings together scholarly
and cultural materials related to baseball from the Library of
Congress, the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History
and Culture, JSTOR, and Wikimedia. Explore the site through "baseball cards" for the players, managers, and executives who
have shaped the game's history; each card links to relevant scholarly
articles, images, and multimedia files. If you have any feedback on this
project, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions about using JSTOR, please feel free to reach out to our support team.
