Welcome to JSTOR! We have a lot of
wonderful content that is freely available to the public, but logging into
an institutional account will unlock access to even more great content and
features. First thing’s first, check if you are authenticated. If you see your
institution’s name in the top center of any JSTOR page, congratulations! You’re
all set. If you don’t, stay calm and click “Log in
through your library” to fix that situation. Let’s suppose your student
writing a paper off-campus. We make suggestions based on the geolocation of
your IP address, but you can also use the search box to find a specific
institution. There are two options that might appear, “Log in” or “More info.” A
“Log in” link will direct you to your institution’s login page so you can
enter your credentials in their system to be authenticated for remote access.
“More info” means that your school has a different authentication method set up
for JSTOR access. You should check with your library for instructions on how to
authenticate if this is the case. One option is a generic remote username and
password which your librarian can provide. In this scenario, you will enter
your credentials on the left side of the page. In either case, when you’ve logged in successfully, you will see the name of your institution in the top center of the page. So remember: log in to get the best access to the most stuff on JSTOR. Questions?
