🆕 New to the Library – JSTOR – Access Articles and More!

JSTOR logo: When clicked will take you to the JSTOR database

What is JSTOR?

JSTOR is a digital library that provides access to over 2,000 journals across the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. There are also many images you can use in your research within. Kapiʻolani CC Library now has access to the following collections: 

  • Arts & Sciences I – XV
  • Life Sciences

You can browse titles by subject or browse by title.

Check out these special collections: 

If you’re interested in analyzing text you can try the Text Analyzer tool which has cool features that lets you drag and drop a document (or paste article text into the search field) in order to search for related articles on JSTOR. 

You can also check out JSTOR Labs’ Projects page, which features projects such as: the Plant Humanities Lab, where you can “explore the cultural histories of plants and their influence on human societies.”

Check out the JSTOR Understanding Series which helps link original works to scholarship by selecting text and passages from works by writers such as William Shakespeare, Frederick Douglass, Walt Whitman, Mary Shelley, the U.S. Constitution, speeches by Martin Luther King, Jr., and more; and connecting them to articles which have referenced these works.

The Library is pleased to announce that the University of Hawaiʻi’s 10-campus system now has access to JSTOR, thanks to the efforts of UH Mānoa’s University Librarian, Clem Guthro.
