JSTOR's Register & Read

Carmichael Library has access to the Arts and Sciences I collection from JSTOR, which includes 119 core journals in economics, history, political science, and sociology, as well as in other key fields in the humanities and social sciences. This collection also contains titles in ecology, mathematics, and statistics.

But, for the content that Carmichael doesn't have access to, JSTOR has introduced a experimental program called Register & Read. People can sign up for a JSTOR account and, every two weeks, read up to three articles online for free. This program makes the archives of more than 1,200 journals available for limited reading by the public. With Register & Read, people can visit JSTOR directly and read any of more than 4.5 million articles for free. They can put up to three articles on their bookshelf where they must be held for a minimum of two weeks, after which more free articles can be shelved.
