Okay, Jstor is driving me nuts. Everytime I search a topic on the internet, a wonderful article preview pops up from Jstor, except that I can't access Jstor and they do not give individual subscriptions. Unless I want to pay $30 per article, I can't access anything on their database. My local library has no access, either.
Does anybody know how I can get access to their articles? Thanks.
any articles in particular you want?
Not really any in particular. Whenever I do a search for topics that I'm researching JSTOR articles pop up (the previews usually reveal them to be exactly what I need) but I can't read them.
Your local library can access your request, they charge to print and some are not allowed to print. You could also become a student or find a friend who is a student and use their logins to access jstore from home.

also, university libraries will sometimes let non-students buy a library card... whether that's a good deal would depend on whether you'd use the libraries other services and how much they'd charge
The library at the state university in my city grants cards to the public for a $50/year donation. I'm not sure if that includes access to the online journal authentication proxy or if it's just for in-house use.
Do libraries allow you to load JSTOR articles onto a thumb drive?
I was wondering about this myself.
My college Library card gives me access to JSTOR and many other online databases/scholarly journals for free (ignoring tuition). Maybe you know someone attending college who would let you borrow his library card and download/print out articles to your heart's content.
At UBC Okanagan, there's nothing stopping you from loading articles on to a thumbdrive, but you need an authentication key for the proxy... I know that members of the community can get library cards, but again, not sure if it gets you in to the online databases.
Yes, it is a similar problem I sometimes have.
Right now I would have liked to have the following aricles:
If somebody has acess and the time to do it I would be grateful for any of these five .pdfs. My email is in my forum profile.
