Books at JSTOR offers more than 85,000 ebooks from renowned scholarly publishers, integrated with journals and primary sources on JSTOR’s easy-to-use platform. All titles offered in Books at JSTOR are available exclusively in a DRM-free, unlimited-user model. The ebooks work just like the journals on JSTOR, with unlimited simultaneous use, downloads, and printing, and no need to log in or use special software.

Demand-Driven Acquisition

Demand-Driven Acquisition (DDA) offers access to a large set of high-quality titles for discovery and use, but your library only pays for those that reach a threshold of usage. You can include all the titles in the ebook program in your DDA corpus, or build a profile based on parameters such as publisher, discipline, language, copyright year, or maximum price. Your users can access and use the titles in your profile, and when usage of a title reaches a set threshold, an acquisition is triggered and the library’s deposit account is debited the price of that title. Once a title is triggered, the library will have perpetual access to it. There is no charge for usage below the purchase trigger.

Subject Collections

Subject collections are available in core disciplines that see high usage on JSTOR, and we also offer 11 collections with Canadian-specific content.

Title-by-Title Selection

You can build a collection set by selecting individual titles from JSTOR's subject collections.
