Guess who's missing?

JSTOR is a British "not–for–profit organization dedicated to helping the scholarly community discover, use, and build upon a wide range of intellectual content in a trusted digital archive. Our overarching aims are to preserve a record of scholarship for posterity and to advance research and teaching in cost–effective ways. We operate a research platform that deploys information technology and tools to increase productivity and facilitate new forms of scholarship. We collaborate with organizations that can help us achieve our objectives and maximize the benefits for the scholarly community."

At the JSTOR web site you can read about the contents.

Someone, or more likely a committee, has judged that JSTOR isn't relevant for Canadian researchers who use Library and Archives Canada.
