We (your friends in the library and the alumni office) are thrilled to sponsor alumni access for JSTOR, a digital archive that offers a wide range of academic content. Whether you are a longtime devotée of this tool (like Dan Toffey ’07, see his tattoo at right) or you’ve never heard of it, prepare to have your world rocked by this research goldmine!*
You may access the same rich set of JSTOR content available to students, faculty, and staff from anywhere in the world. Simply log in using your Kerberos credentials (the same login and password that you use for the online directory in IRIS) at http://library.reed.edu/services/alumni-jstor .
If you’ve not yet set up a Kerberos account, please visit https://account-tools.reed.edu/claim/. You will need your Reed ID number to get started; if you do not know this number, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503/777-7589.
