The interface to JSTOR, a popular cross-disciplinary database, has been changed this month, which afffects KU Libraries patrons in two
First, w hen accessing full-text PDF articles, patrons must click through a pop-up message. To access these articles, patrons'
browsers must be set to allow pop-ups for this site.
Second, JSTOR has changed its persistent links to full text articles. The new links are shorter and will be easier to use. However, that means links to full text in Blackboard and the KU Libraries E Reserves system created before this change took place will no longer work.
More than 100 links to JSTOR full text articles in the KU Libraries E Reserves system could be affected. Libraries staff are working on ways to correct the links, and have informed faculty whose E Reserves course content include these links. Libraries staff are also communicating with the JSTOR vendor.
