We have extended browser pairing on both JSTOR and Artstor. Pairing means that if a person visited either site from their campus network (through a proxy or a VPN, for example) within the last 30 days, their off-campus access from the same browser will be extended through December 31,2020 instead of the normal 30 days. Browser pairing is lost when a browser cookies are cleared.
As of May 1, people who normally access JSTOR through an institutional account can create a personal account on JSTOR and it will be paired with their institutional access. Any person with a paired account can then use their account to access JSTOR for 120 days (temporarily increased from 90 days during COVID-19) no matter where they are located. Learn more about account pairing on the JSTOR Support site.
We have partnered with Google to support streamlined access to JSTOR. Campus Activated Subscriber Access (CASA) grants students access to an institution's licensed content off-campus. CASA builds on Google Scholar's Subscriber Links program; when a researcher visits Google Scholar while on campus, it remembers their affiliation. Then, when away from campus, they'll continue to have access to licensed JSTOR content that's searched through Google Scholar.

During the current public health crisis, many institutions are gaining access to an expanded set of academic ebooks from JSTOR, but did you know that more than 6,000 open access books are always available for use by anyone? The short video below is a great introduction to finding and using ebooks on JSTOR. You can share the link or embed this video on course sites and in library guides.
The Workspace is a tool to organize your research for articles and book chapters you want to work with later. Within the space, group your citations using folders for different topics and projects, or just save items to the space. You can add notes on your items, delete, and move items to and from folders plus export any citation from your workspace when you’re logged in.
All of the guides we offer are free and public and include user-friendly URLs for creating easy links from library and course web pages. Springshare customer libraries have the added benefit of being able to copy full JSTOR guides or sections of guides for reuse within their own LibGuides site.
Research Basics is a self-paced course that helps students learn academic research skills.
In order to most effectively use scholarly content in their research, students need to acquire the skills to navigate the resources. Built by librarians, this free course contains three modules of three lessons each that focus on library tools, smart searching, and managing information overload. Lessons are made up of video lectures followed by practice activities.
