JSTOR Database Access Has Changed

By Sharyl O. RSS Mon, September 25, 2023

The JSTOR database, which provides more than 12 million scholarly journal articles, books, images, and primary sources in 75 disciplines, has changed its access policies. JSTOR has stopped the expanded access to public libraries that it provided during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This means that JSTOR is no longer available remotely (off-site) to our library patrons. Patrons can continue to access JSTOR content by visiting any Free Library of Philadelphia location with their Free Library card and PIN.

Similar scholarly resources are available remotely (off-site) via the Academic OneFile and Academic Search Main Edition databases, which can be accessed on our databases page with a Free Library card and PIN, along with all our other great electronic resources.

For those who don't yet have a Free Library card, apply for one today!

Have a question for Free Library staff? Please submit it to our Ask a Librarian page and receive a response within two business days.
