JSTOR is a digital library for the intellectually curious. We provide a platform for discovering and connecting research, images, and primary sources. As a not-for-profit, we partner with libraries, museums, and publishers to reduce costs, extend access, and preserve scholarship for the future. We do this because we believe in the power of knowledge to change the world for the better.

JSTOR beyond journals

Discover the visual side of JSTOR, including artwork, newspapers, manuscripts, photographs, and other artifacts contributed by libraries, museums, archives, and historical societies around the world.

Books at JSTOR

Our program offers more than 100,000 ebooks from renowned scholarly publishers, integrated with journals and primary sources on JSTOR’s easy-to-use platform. We focus on delivering great content and experiences to researchers—and great value to academic libraries.


The most extensive image resource for educational and scholarly use brings together media from top museums, archives, scholars, and artists, with a specialized suite of tools for teaching and learning with visual materials.

Open Community Collections

Expand the reach of your digitized collections where scholars and students begin their research, particularly in humanities and social sciences. Your collections will be integrated and cross-searchable with the wide array of journals, books, primary sources, and images on JSTOR.

Open Access and free

Our partnerships with libraries and publishers help us make journals, books, images, and research reports discoverable and freely accessible worldwide


COVID-19 support for libraries

To support our institutions during this challenging time, JSTOR and our participating publishers are making an expanded set of content freely available to our participating institutions where students have been displaced due to COVID-19. We have also opened content and expanded access for non-participants.

COVID-19 fee relief

Our Trustees approved a relief initiative to mitigate the financial impact of COVID-19 on our participants. Subscribing CzechELib institutions will receive a 5% fee offset to one year of JSTOR and Artstor annual access fees which may be applied to licensing additional resources, including Books at JSTOR.
