Locating and Using Ebooks

Linking to a JSTOR Ebook

NOTE: JSTOR's stable URL does not include the Library proxy prefix which is needed so Fitchburg State affiliates can access the ebooks off-campus using their Falcon key credentials. You will need to append the Library proxy to the front of the URL before adding it to Blackboard or sending the link to off-campus users.

The Library's proxy prefiix  is http://ezproxy.fitchburgstate.edu:2048/login?url=

An example of a stable URL for an ebook in JSTOR is https://www.jstor.org/stable/2929597.  Once you add the proxy prefix the stable URL would be http://ezproxy.fitchburgstate.edu:2048/login?url=https://www.jstor.org/stable/2929597

Linking to a ebook or ebook chapter in JSTOR

1). If results take you to the landing page for an ebook, the stable URL for the ebook is located in the middle of page. Remember to add the Proxy prefix to the front of the URL.

 

 

2) Click on a chapter title to find the stable URL for a specific chapter in an ebook. Remember to add the Proxy prefix to the front of the URL.
