Alternative strategies to online library resources

Unfortunately we do not have the licensing that would allow alumni access to our online resources, e.g., JSTOR, from off-campus, but here are some alternative strategies you could consider.

  • JSTOR now offers a Register & Read option that allows you to sign up for free, read-online up to 3 articles every 2 weeks, but the more important aspect is the ability to search JSTOR and then you could request the journal articles you found from your local library through interlibrary loan.
  • If you can get to campus, you’ll have total access to all our resources.
  • If you can get to a nearby academic library, you may have access to their resources as a ” library walk-in”. Be sure to call ahead to check on local policies.
  • In the State of Maine, you could use all MARVEL databases that are accessible to all citizens through state funding, including some like Academic Search Complete which have a lot of full text articles.  A number of other states have similar arrangements; check with a local library.
  • You could search Google Scholar which indexes a large number of journal articles, some of which are from JSTOR, then you could request a specific journal article from your local library through interlibrary loan.
