JSTOR Archive Collections:


Ithaka is a not-for-profit organization which provides electronic access to many journals (many of which date back to the 1800s), primary sources, and electronic books on its JSTOR platform.

Content can be browsed by subject, title, and publisher. There is also a basic keyword search, and an advanced search function that allows combining multiple fields with Boolean operators, and limiting to content available to your institution, item type, date range, language, and discipline.

Laurier Library subscribes primarily to backfiles or archives of these journals so the most recent few years of articles are not typically not available. Here's the list of the journal archive collections available to us:

  • Arts & Sciences I Collection
  • Arts & Sciences II Collection
  • Arts & Sciences III Collection
  • Arts & Sciences IV Collection
  • Arts & Sciences V Collection
  • Arts & Sciences VI Collection
