Free Access to JStor

JStor (stands for journal storage) is a collection of thousands of academic journals which I used to have to climb library stairs to get.  Fortunately my school gives free access to it, but not everyone has that.  Now JStor is offering free access to 1200 journals to anyone who is willing to register and then have their user information will be shared with JStor's partners.   The other limitation is that you will only be able to read three journal articles every two weeks.  But it's not as if you are going to be sharing lots of these articles with your students, so if you do not have access, the limitations certainly seem worth it.  I found out about this from a Google+ post from

Roane Beard.
