JSTOR is a not-for-profit organization with a dual mission to create and maintain a trusted archive of important scholarly journals, and to provide access to these journals as widely as possible. JSTOR offers researchers the ability to retrieve high-resolution, scanned images of journal issues and pages as they were originally designed, printed, and illustrated. The journals archived in JSTOR span many disciplines.
We are one of the very few public high school in Georgia with access to this college level database of scholarly articles. If you would like a more contemporary tutorial on how to use JSTOR, check out these cool new Web 2.0 learning resources!
