We’d like to point out some JSTOR training resources available to you, free of charge.

The Training & Materials page has downloadable resources for training and education, to save you time:
-Webinars on using JSTOR (online live and recorded)
-PowerPoint presentations to train others on using JSTOR
-JSTOR Search widget for your library web page (can include your proxy server for remote access)
-Materials to download: How-to poster, FAQ Handout, JSTOR logos & screen shots and more

The Help documentation includes detailed search help, which spells out how to refine a search.

The Tutorials page has many short videos on using JSTOR. New: Finding or Avoiding Reviews; Advanced Search; Primary vs. Secondary Sources; and more. The YouTube versions can be embedded into your LibGuides.

The Resources for Librarians page has links to stats, policies, upcoming events, and more.

Some of the training resources, such as the “How to Use JSTOR” poster and the “Reviews in JSTOR: How to Find or Avoid them” video tutorial were suggested by librarians as materials that would be helpful to them. What do you wish JSTOR could help you with? If you have questions or suggestions, please contact training@jstor.org.
