In August, JSTOR will be taking part in the Society of American Archivists (SAA) virtual conference to share recent initiatives and developments, including updates on the Open Community Collections.

We recognize and commend the work of archivists as our partners in uncovering and preserving essential primary source materials for generations of researchers to come, most recently through our Open Community Collections initiative, which makes freely available rare primary source materials from the special holdings of more than 130 institutions around the world.

These resources take shape in more than 460 collections of photographs, scrapbooks, newspapers, maps, glass-plate negatives, bookplates, and much more. Materials span a wide range of topics and disciplines, and are discoverable alongside related ebooks, journals, images, and research reports.

As we continue to grow this initiative and harvest additional collections, we hope to partner with archivists to expose researchers to new materials that will provide a unique perspective on events, movements, and moments in history.

Would you like to share your collections with millions of researchers around the globe? Complete this form to get started.
