An affordable, high-quality research option for secondary school libraries

Widely respected by major universities for its quality and functionality, JSTOR provides the same content to your students that they will encounter in college. We also offer an easy-to-use platform with a suite of tools for research and study. To date, more than 2,600 secondary schools have access to JSTOR.

The Secondary Schools Collection

Because we believe that access to the best sources is crucial to developing tomorrow’s great thinkers, JSTOR offers Secondary schools the same collections as colleges and four-year universities at a small fraction of the cost. Fees for each school are based on its college and university enrollment rate. All of the touchstone disciplines on the JSTOR platform are included in the secondary schools collection, from literature and history to biology and mathematics.

The package contains more than 2,600 leading archival journals, as well as primary source collections featuring pamphlets, manuscripts, letters, oral histories, government documents, images, 3D models, spatial data, type specimens, drawings, paintings, and more. Journal issues start from the first issue and extend up to a publication date usually set in the past three to five years.

Exceptional thematic content on JSTOR

Included in the Secondary Schools Collection are three subject-specific groups of major interest to high school students and faculty:
