Each year, JSTOR updates the special URL (a.k.a. token) required to activate or revalidate a MyJSTOR account.  To find this special (and lengthy) URL so you can create/reactivate a MyJSTOR account, follow these steps:

  1. Log on to the MLWGS network
  2. On the Windows Start Menu, Select Computer
  3. Double-click on the SHARED (S:) drive
  4. Open the STUDENTS folder
  5. Open the LIBRARY folder
  6. Open jstor_access_steps_updated092309 (available in PDF, Word 2003, and Word 2007)
  7. Follow the instructions*

*If you don’t have time to complete the instructions at school, then drag the file to your flash drive and complete the steps at home.
