At the beginning of the lockdown in March, we gladly reported that our partner JSTOR is keeping up the good work and providing expanded access to their platform to support libraries, faculties, and students during the crisis.

Now, here is more good news: since we do not know now whether students will be able to return to campus in fall, expanded access programs will continue through December 31, 2020. This applies to JSTOR’s archive and primary source collections. Amongst others, this contains:

  • full archive expanded access program. Institutions may request access here: www.jstor.org/librarians/admin
  • free online reading expanded to 100 articles per month
  • remote access enablement, upon request, for public library participants

We are happy that we can count on our partner as we have always done, and keep uploading digitized content to JSTOR to provide well-prepared e-content to institutions and our readers.


JSTOR is part of ITHAKA, a not-for-profit organization based in the U.S. JSTOR provides a research and taching platform providing access to roughly 12 million academic journal articles, books, and primary sources in 75 disciplines. (source: www.jstor.org, May 25, 2020)
