Off Campus JSTOR Login
Off Campus access to JSTOR
JSTOR’s Institution Finder, is a login service, that directs off-campus users to the MLC institutional login page, for authentication when they find JSTOR content on the web.
A growing number of end-users are finding content from a variety of places including Google, Google Scholar and Wikipedia and coming directly to JSTOR, unauthenticated. The Institution Finder is designed to return the end-user to the exact JSTOR page they started on, most often a specific article, rather than the home page or a search page.
Here’s a quick explanation of how it works:
1. A Martin Luther College user arrives on a JSTOR article page from a Google search or other referring page
2. An on-campus user will get automatic access to the full-text, but users outside of the Martin Luther College IP range will be denied access
3. When denied access to the full-text, the user is presented with some options for accessing JSTOR including a link to the JSTOR login page and the Institution Finder.
4. From there they can search for their institution and follow a link to the Martin Luther College login page.
- Note: You need to have set up a MyJSTOR account previously in JSTOR.
5. After logging in they are authenticated to JSTOR and will be automatically redirected to the original full-text article.
