Libraries may choose to subscribe to individual archive collections, current journals, and may purchase books from JSTOR.
- All of the content licensed or purchased by a library is cross-searchable on JSTOR.
- Journals, books, and pamphlets on JSTOR are all full-text.
- All the materials on JSTOR are scholarly and academic. Almost all journals are peer-reviewed. However, some journal issues pre-date today's standard peer-review process, and some are literary/primary materials – these would not have gone through a peer review process.
The institutional mission is to keep, develop, and disseminate human knowledge, in addition to developing national human resources in order to create leaders who are aware of national heritage and future needs in collaboration with other academic institutions of similar mission.
