JSTOR Offers Students Access to Research


I read “Free apps and things to do at home during the coronavirus pandemic” this morning. That article mentions that JSTOR has made its entire library accessible to the public —without academic credentials.
JSTOR is an academic resource that contains a plethora of ebooks and journals. It provides access to more than 12 million academic journal articles, books, and primary sources in 75 disciplines. This may sound like dry reading to many. Students confined at home without access to a library may find this useful for research.
I find this of interest due to the extensive history content. My search for “WWII” on the JSTOR website resulted in 20,716 results. Searching the “Open Content” part resulted in 1170. There were more than 700 for a search on “D-Day”. Not every one of the items that appear is going to have the content you are looking for. You never know though what you may find.
See “Need Help Logging in to JSTOR?” to find out how to register.

If you are interested in the WWII era of history, you may find these three pages of interest. 

  • The “World War II Sources” page is a constantly growing collection of more than 360 links to museums, memorials, websites, Facebook pages, Twitter feeds and other sources with information on the World War II-era in history.
  • The “World War II Timeline” page expands almost daily and shows events leading up to WWII, as well as during the war. Events are broken down into the Pacific and European Theaters by date.
  • The About WWII page is a collection of links to posts that I have made over the years that are relevant to WWII.
