WFU Alumni access to EBSCO and JSTOR will be discontinued December 31, 2020.

JSTOR offers several options for individuals, some of them free. EBSCO does not sell to individuals but North Carolina residents can get similar content from ProQuest via NC LIVE; you’ll need a local public library card to access the site.
