6.3.2 Unlocking Opportunity: Using the JSTOR Platform to Get Library Special Collections into the Research Workflow Without a Paywall

Libraries, museums, and archives hold rich and unique special collections that are critical to research, teaching, and learning. Yet these collections are often time-consuming and expensive to support and can be difficult for scholars to discover and use. JSTOR has a history of unlocking the value of underleveraged materials, starting first with digitizing the back runs of journals. Today, the JSTOR platform is visited by millions of researchers every day, in thousands of institutions from 175 countries around the globe. We are working to take the infrastructure we have developed and make it openly available to libraries. Libraries will be able to host their special collections on JSTOR, integrated alongside books and journals, where they can reach scholars from around the world. We will discuss how we are working with libraries to help make JSTOR their platform and enable special collections to have their broadest possible reach.
