Using JSTOR Essential: Other Teaching Resources

The Merced College Library now subscribes to JSTOR Essential, a version of JSTOR which provides access to content from over 680 journals in the humanities and social sciences.

How to Link to Articles / Chapters

To link articles / chapters for your students to be able to access:

  • Don't use the Stable URL
    • Example:
  • MCCD users can't log into JSTOR via the Stable URL / JSTOR website
  • Instead, when you are logged into JSTOR, use the URL that appears in the address bar only up to the question mark (do not include the question mark)
    • Example:
  • This link will ask MCCD users to enter their MC Portal username & password
