JStor Maintenance

Jstor has notified us that "on Friday, September 9 and Saturday, September 10, they will be performing site maintenance that requires a “read-only” period for these two days.

During this scheduled maintenance, users will be able to search, browse, and access and download PDF files for content in JSTOR. They will not be able to save citations, reset passwords, create or update MyJSTOR accounts, or purchase articles."

Given that this is happening in the US, it means that availability will be limited here on the weekend of September 10 & 11. So plan ahead and make sure you don't need to do any major Jstor research that weekend!
