Subscribe to JSTOR - Student Scholarly Journal Database

Each year, JSTOR (one of scholarly journal databases to which the MW Library subscribes) updates the special URL (a.k.a. token) required to activate or revalidate a MyJSTOR account. To find this special and lengthy URL in order to create/reactivate a MyJSTOR account, each student should follow the steps below while on-campus:
  1. Log on to the MLWGS network
  2. On the Windows Start Menu, Select Computer
  3. Double-click on the SHARED (S:) drive
  4. Open the STUDENTS folder
  5. Open the LIBRARY folder
  6. Open jstor_access_steps_updated092309 (available in PDF, Word 2003, and Word 2007)
  7. Follow the instructions*
*Students who don’t have time to complete the instructions at school should drag the file to a flash drive and complete the steps at home.
