JSTOR Announces Alumni Access Program

JSTOR announced a new Alumni Access program, which enables participating higher education institutions to provide their alumni with access to their JSTOR archive collections. This is an important next step in its ongoing efforts to extend access to scholarship to individuals around the world.

The launch of the Alumni Access program follows a successful 3-year pilot that was undertaken with nearly 50 institutions, including public and private institutions, U.S. and overseas universities, and theological seminaries. This pilot helped JSTOR and its partner libraries understand the implementation issues and to develop an approach that it believes will be valuable and sustainable. The feedback from both pilot institutions and their alumni has been overwhelmingly positive.

While the Alumni Access Program will officially launch in January 2013, JSTOR will turn on access and waive the Annual Access Fee (AAF) for the remainder of 2012. The Alumni Access participation fee is 10% of the institution's total AAF. The program is open to eligible higher education institutions worldwide; please contact us for eligibility requirements. Participating schools must support the bifurcation of alumni usage from their main account.

JSTOR is part of ITHAKA, a not-for-profit organization helping the academic community use digital technologies to preserve the scholarly record and to advance research and teaching in sustainable ways.
