Advisory: Due to the COVID pandemic, JSTOR is providing participating institutions with free access to journals and primary sources they do not already license through June 30, 2023.

Digital library of academic journals, books and primary sources.

Carleton subscribes to the complete archives of a large number of major journals in a variety of subjects. JSTOR is a "moving wall" archive: newer years are added as publishers allow. For example, one journal may cover everything up to 3 years ago, while another may cover everything up to 5 years ago.

Carleton also has access to eBooks from selected Subject Collections in Business & Economics, Film Studies, History, Law, Political Science and Sociology.

Open access ebooks are also available through JSTOR. Users do not need to register, and there are no DRM restrictions or limits on chapter PDF downloads or printing.
