HIST 106-01 United States History II: Searching JSTOR

Dr. Saddington's class

Getting Started with JSTOR

Searching JSTOR

Click on "Database List" on the library home page.




 Databases are listed alphabetically. Click on the link to JSTOR.


When searching from off-campus, you will be prompted to enter your user name and password. This is the same user name and password used to access campus computers.

You will see a simple search screen. Click "Advanced Search" for more search options.



Enter your search terms and choose a field to search. Keep in mind that not all articles have an abstract or caption. If you are searching for a topic but do not have a title or author, you will want to search full-text.



Limit by "Item Type" to remove book reviews, etc. from your results list and only retrieve articles.


 Limit to "History" so you only get results from history journals.


Click the "Search" button.Once you find an article in the results list you would like to read, click the "Download PDF" button to access the full text. If you would like help with citing an article, click the "Cite this Item" button.
