JSTOR, the not-for-profit digital library of thousands of academic journals and other content, offers the archives of more than 2,600 journals for limited reading by the public. Individuals can register for an account and access 6 free-articles a month, outside of an institutional subscription. Note: this has been temporarily increased to 100-articles in response to COVID-19.
Several states provide access to selected online resources. Contact your state library or local public library for more information. For example, NOVELNY (New York Online Virtual Electronic Library) provides New York state residents with online access to several databases. Connect to NOVELny resources via your local public library, using your library card, NY State Driver's License, or obtain a card from the New York State Library.
The NYPL has extensive print, media, and online collections. Any person over the age of 13 who lives, works, attends school or pays property taxes in New York State is eligible to receive a New York Public Library card free of charge. After successfully applying for a card, you can remotely search digital resources such as ebooks, databases, and educational resources.
