JSTOR's growing digital library of more than 1,900 academic journals, 15,000 books, and 2 million primary source objects is available to more than 10,000 institutions in more than 160 countries. Our ultimate objective is to make the content on JSTOR available to everyone who wants access to it, and to do so in a way that ensures its sustainability.

The new Alumni Access program is an important step in our ongoing efforts to extend access to scholarship to individuals around the world. It enables eligible higher education institutions to provide their alumni with full access to the same set of archival journals collections available to current students and faculty.

The launch of the Alumni Access program follows a successful 3-year pilot that was undertaken with nearly 50 institutions, including public and private institutions, US and overseas universities, and theological seminaries. We introduced the pilot to address interest from our participating institutions, and to examine whether this access model may help to serve the access requests from individuals who are no longer active students at participating institutions. This pilot helped JSTOR and our partner libraries understand the implementation issues and to develop an approach that we believe will be valuable and sustainable.

The program is open to eligible higher education institutions worldwide, excepting higher education institutions that have low or no-cost access via the Developing Nations Access Initiative or African Access Initiative. The Alumni Access participation fee for subscribing institutions is 10% of the institution’s total AAF. Subscribing institutions must support the bifurcation of alumni from their main JSTOR account via IP based or referring URL access methods.

By far the most frequent question asked by Smith alumnae is "How do I access the library's databases from off-campus?" Before participating in the Alumni Access pilot, our canned reply was "I'm sorry, but you can't." Now we're able to give a very different answer, and the response from our alumnae has been overwhelmingly enthusiastic.

Now THAT is kindness. Many alums do not have access to research libraries, and an alumnae association that recognizes that info gap is really moving with the times.

Our Alumni Access usage numbers rather speak for themselves. We are always looking for ways to expand our services to our alumni community; access to JSTOR over the past several years has been a cornerstone of these efforts.

We featured JSTOR access for alumni on the King's College web pages and the response was phenomenal. In just one day, we had 700 requests to become Alumni Online members so they could access JSTOR.

Yale encourages students to pursue lifelong learning, and the library is proud to be able to add to the ways it serves alumni to continue their intellectual inquiry and research endeavors well beyond commencement.

The best thing Yale had done for me since becoming an alum.

Offering alumni access to scholarly journals is an exciting proposition. In the past our licenses didn't allow us to expand access to all of our graduates at a reasonable cost. We love helping our alumni stay connected with the scholarly resources they used as students.

Having access online to JSTOR will save so much time previously spent on driving to university libraries, and it will contribute to our shared pursuit of lifelong learning.

The alumni I talk to are thankful that we are able to provide them with something to aid them in their research.
