Journals and Primary Source Content:
JSTOR creates and enters new cataloging records or updates existing cataloging records in OCLC for each title, current or previous, in the archive. The records include the URL for each title in the 856 MARC field.
Currently, the only way to locate all the cataloging records for each title in a JSTOR collection is to conduct a title-by-title search in OCLC. When reviewing records for potential downloading to your local system, please ensure that there is not a MARC field indicating “Record reported for deletion.” In such cases, a different record should be located and reviewed for downloading.
Books at JSTOR offers free, high-quality MARC records from OCLC. The MARC records are available to all participating institutions, regardless of whether they are OCLC affiliates.
