Q: MIT Alumni access to JSTOR

  • Do MIT Alumni have access to JSTOR ?


  • JSTOR is a digital library of academic journals, books, and primary sources.
  • JSTOR recently introduced an alumni program, allowing an institution's alumni to access JSTOR through an institution's library.


This is a community-discovered answer, and not an official MIT Libraries / MIT Alumni answer.

MIT Alumni do have access to JSTOR.

  1. Start at:
  2. Click the link for Alumni access to JSTOR
    If needed, log in with your credentials.

You should end up at a JSTOR search page. At the point you're done, you can search JSTOR.

The search page is a little confusing because it has a second login link. Ignore the second login link; it would take you to main JSTOR login page, which won't work for you. (The search page is owned by JSTOR, not owned by MIT, so MIT is not able to remove the confusing second login link.)
