Yale University Library Will Provide JSTOR Access to All Alumni
Yale’s more than 130,000 alumni worldwide now have access to a treasure trove of online resources thanks to collaboration between the Association of Yale Alumni (AYA), JSTOR and the Yale University Library.
Alumni can freely use all JSTOR collections licensed by Yale. JSTOR (short for “journal storage”), a non-profit service founded in 1995, is a digital archive of over 1,000 academic journals and one million primary sources.
Alumni use of these resources is made possible by the launch of JSTOR’s Alumni Access Pilot. Yale alumni who have registered for the online alumni community can now access JSTOR through the AYA website at http://www.aya.yale.edu/content/jstor-access.
Laura Brown, JSTOR managing director, said: It’s exciting to think that recent graduates who used JSTOR during school will continue to have access, as will older alumni offering great background for business, travel, continuing education, teaching, and cultural pursuits.”
