Jstor access is back


Access to Jstor has returned!  Thank you again for your patience!


Jstor is still undergoing an outage.  We recently received this message from them:

We are continuing to make progress restoring full access to JSTOR.  Users should be able to search, browse, and access most journal articles and primary sources on www.jstor.org. Access to books as well as journal content published in the most recent few years may be intermittent.  If you need help, please feel free to email us at support@jstor.org.

We will let you know when the issue is resolved and again, thank you for your patience.
