No, you do not need to purchase articles from JSTOR.

The library subscribes to some, but not all of the collections in JSTOR, so if you search the entire database you may run into content that we don't have immediate access to. When this happens, look to the for a button marked "SNHU Article Linker." This will search our other databases to see if we have access to the content elsewhere.

If we do not, you will be directed to a screen that will allow you to request the item through Interlibrary Loan. ILL is a service where we go out and get the article from another library and give you electronic access to it. The ILL process may take 7 -15 days or longer, so it is a good idea to leave some lead time when starting your research.
